At Farmdale we want to make sure that ALL of our stakeholders have a voice - that includes STUDENTS.  Our students are caring and intelligent and know what they need to make Farmdale the best Community School to serve their needs.

Contact Ms. Mordaunt by sending her an e-mail at jlm4559@lausd.net to find out when the next Student Leadership meeting will be held.

Since March 2020, our student leadership meetings have been held on line via Zoom.  We combined our Student Council with our Community School Leadership Team and held weekly zoom meetings to hear students' opinions about the current learning situation, how to improve it, what students like about Farmdale and some ideas of how to make it better.

CS Students participated in weekly meetings with Ms. Dominguez and Ms. Mordaunt to give their input and ideas about what is currently working well at Farmdale and what we can improve.

CS Student Leader Aniyah Ramos supports students as they take the survey.  Students in grades 3 through 5 were given a google form survey which the CS Student Leaders created themselves.

The Community School Student Leadership Team spent Nov. 2019 through March 2020 surveying students during recess and lunch through in-person interviews conducted on ipads, through drawings and google forms.  They persisted and got over 80% participation in each grade level!

Students taking a survey
Brandon Zamora and Samantha Rosales show students the results of the survey and let them know they need as many students to participate so they can understand what Farmdale students want.
