BEND, OR -- Bend-La Pine Schools Superintendent Shay Mikalson approved new boundaries for elementary schools, Tuesday, to take effect next fall. The district made changes to accommodate the new 600-student school opening in September at O.B. Riley and Cooley Road, as well as alleviate pressure from growing enrollment throughout the city.
Generally, the boundary for the new school stretches from Tumalo to Butler Market and Mount Washington Drive, east to Highway 97, as well as a small portion of the Boyd Acres neighborhood. Click HERE to download a PDF of the new boundary map.
A committee worked for months, including community meetings and surveys, to come up with the new boundaries for elementary schools. Next school year, the district will do the same for middle and high school boundaries in advance of the new southeast Bend high school opening in 2021.
