Attendance Area Review 2018-20

Silver Rail Cafeteria

Secondary Attendance Area Review Process Begins

In preparation for the fall 2021 opening of a new high school in southeast Bend, a volunteer team and Bend-La Pine Schools staff will begin reviewing attendance areas for middle and high schools throughout the district this fall. The group will review current attendance areas for all secondary schools and will make suggested adjustments to balance enrollments and reduce overcrowding at some area schools. The group will host several public meetings during the process and is expected to make a recommendation for new attendance areas by spring 2020 to Superintendent Shay Mikalson.

This is Phase 2 for the attendance area review process, following the adoption of new attendance areas for elementary schools last spring.


Process and timeline

WHY:

Bend-La Pine Schools is opening two new schools: A 600-seat elementary school in north-central Bend will open in fall of 2019. A high school will open in southeast Bend in fall of 2021.

Attendance areas are being reviewed and adjusted to account for these new schools and to balance enrollment across all schools.
