Public Invited to Review Attendance Area Options

Maps, Survey Online Now; Six Meetings in Coming Week

Article Date: Dec 03, 2019

PRESS RELEASE:

Bend-La Pine Schools’ Attendance Area Review Committee invites interested community members to offer input about three potential middle and high school attendance area maps during six upcoming open house style meetings. Proposed changes would not take effect until the 2020-21 school year. Meetings are set:

Tuesday, December 3 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.

  • Cascade Middle School
  • Pilot Butte Middle School
  • Sky View Middle School

Thursday, December 5 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.

  • High Desert Middle School
  • Pacific Crest Middle School

Monday, December 9 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.

  • Three Rivers School

At the drop-in style events, community members will be able to review three potential map scenarios, speak with committee members and provide feedback about the options. Community members will also be able to share input through an online survey, which will be open from Tuesday, Dec. 3 to Friday, Dec. 13 on our Attendance Area Review webpage.

New attendance areas will define the attendance area for Bend-La Pine Schools’ new high school in southeast Bend opening in fall of 2021 and redraw attendance areas throughout the district to balance enrollment and prevent overcrowding at area middle and high schools.

The committee will consider comments and survey results while drafting their recommendation.

The committee is expected to make its final recommendation to the Superintendent in spring of 2020.Learn more about the process at Bend-La Pine Schools’ attendance area review webpage
