Attendance Area Review Meetings Set

Six Public Meetings Set

Article Date: Nov 08, 2019

Secondary Attendance Area Review Process Begins

In preparation for the fall 2021 opening of a new high school in southeast Bend, a team of volunteers 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.
