Students from outside the Bend La Pine School District could soon have an easier time transferring in. The School Board Tuesday unanimously approved a new district transfer policy. A new state law requires each of the state’s school districts to decide by March 1st how many student transfers it will accept. Deputy Superintendent John Rexford says preference will be given to transfer students already attending a district school and their siblings. He says Bend La Pine, Sisters and Redmond will all have similar policies and have generally allowed students to easily transfer between districts.
