FERNDALE, Wash. — Officials with the Ferndale School District announced on their website today, November 2nd, they had accepted the resignation of Director of Equity and Inclusion Barbara Robles. Robles had been named in reports regarding her continued campaign for a City Council seat in Ellensburg after accepting her position with the Ferndale School District in August.
This afternoon, the Ferndale School District accepted the resignation of Barbara del Mar Robles, effective immediately. Barbara joined the district as the Director of Equity and Inclusion in August 2021. The district wishes her the best of luck in her future endeavors.
Although we are disappointed that Barbara will not be able to carry on this work, the Ferndale School District remains committed to its work in providing an equitable learning environment for all students. The district will take some time to assess its needs and determine the next steps.
She had announced yesterday, through a post on the District website, that she had discontinued her pursuit of the council position.
