As of 5 p.m. on October 18, 2021, Bend-La Pine Schools reports more than 99 percent of staff members have complied with the state’s vaccine mandate, by providing proof of vaccination or a medical or religious exception. Of the district’s 2,028 full- and part-time employees, 15 chose not to comply with the state’s regulation.

Vaccination Statistics

  • 91% of staff are vaccinated
  • 8.4% religious exception
  • 0.6% medical exception
  • Less than 1 percent staff are on unpaid leave = 15 individuals

Because an overwhelming number of staff members complied with the regulation, Bend-La Pine Schools anticipates little impact on day-to-day operations.
