BEND, OR -- The 27-member Attendance Area Review Committee for Bend-La Pine Schools will release a draft of the new elementary school attendance area maps, during two open house meetings, this week. The first is Tuesday at Sky View Middle School, the second is Thursday at Pacific Crest Middle School. Both meetings are 4:30-6:30 p.m. Click HERE for more information on the events.
Shifting elementary school boundaries is necessary to balance attendance, as the district prepares to open the new 600-student elementary school on the north end of Bend. The draft boundary map was created using feedback from meetings and surveys conducted in October.
The committee is expected to make its final recommendation to the Superintendent in January. The approved attendance areas will take effect in the fall of 2019. District officials expect every neighborhood elementary school in Bend to see changes.
