Over the past several months, the Fern Ridge School District has solicited input from a wide range of constituents regarding our upcoming Student Investment Account Application (due April 15th), and how best to meet the requirements of HB 3427 while addressing the needs of our students.
We have done this through a review of data, surveys, and “listening/input sessions” with parents, community members/groups, certified staff, classified staff, students and targeted student groups. This data has been compiled reviewed and our initial DRAFT application is beginning to take shape. That draft, will first be shared and discussed at our 6:30 PM school board meeting on Monday, February 10th.
The district will consider all feedback given over the following month until our board meeting on March 9th. We hope to approve the final application at the March 16th school board meeting. The best way/opportunity for all constituents to provide feedback will be to attend a board meeting on Feb 10th or March 9th to hear about the plan and speak during the public portion of the meeting if you would like to share your thoughts.
Thanks to those that have been participating, and those that continue to do so in the months and years to come.

The Elmira High School “Strong Start” program for incoming freshmen will be July 30th through August 2nd. It is a volunteer and no-cost program with a curriculum created at Stanford University and by Silicon Valley professionals. The goal is to give students decision making and problem-solving skills that will help them be more productive and achieve more throughout their high school experience and beyond. Students will also become familiar with the school and staff and work with upperclassmen to be better prepared for the first day of high school. Students do not have to come all four days.
For more information you can call 441-1706 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
