It’s getting a little crowded at some middle schools in Bend, so the Bend La Pine Schools is looking at redrawing some school boundaries to redistribute students.  “The plan in terms of continued growth was to build our next middle school down on the south end of Bend. That is still the plan, but as growth has slowed down and as the economy challenges have hit, there is not another bond planned in the near future. So it will be a while until we have that next middle school built.” Bend La Pine Schools Superintendent Ron Wilkinson says they are overcrowded the most at Cascade Middle School. They have more than 900 students in a building designed for 800. The District is right at capacity at High Desert Middle School. More available capacity is at Pilot Butte and Skyview Middle Schools. The School Board will appoint a committee in the next two to three weeks, and that committee should have a report finished by February.
