Many Bend La Pine schools populations are flat, but not Cascade Middle School.  The westside school is more than 100 students over capacity. Tina Fischer is the parent of an 8th grader who attends Cascade Middle School: “You know, in middle school it’s a little different than it was in elementary school. Overcrowding in a middle school means that, you know, the cafeteria is a crazy place now. They have parents now to come in and help with supervision. Gym classes are huge. The hallways are packed. The kids can’t move around really well. So it’s more issues on facilities.”   Fischer is on the boundary committee that will meet this afternoon at 4 p.m. in the Bend La Pine Schools Board Room on Wall Street, to discuss different options. Any boundary changes agreed on won't affect students currently attending Cascade Middle School until next year.
