Student Voice


The Student Advisory Committee met from January 2015 to June 2016. At that time, this committee was open to all interested Ferndale students in grades 5-12. It was facilitated by Superintendent Linda Quinn and School Board Members Lee Anne Riddle, Payton Nelson and Liam DeLara.

Beginning with the 2016-2017 school year, the ways in which the committee gathered information changed. Led by Student School Board Members Ben Bagley and Jeremy Knapp, and Superintendent Linda Quinn, meetings with students began taking place during the school day at both Ferndale High and Windward High schools.

We want students to be able to voice their opinions and make recommendations about issues of importance to them. America’s democratic system is rooted in the belief that all citizens who are affected by a system should have a voice in how it is run.
