People may be starting to move back to Bend again, but in much smaller numbers than in years past. The latest numbers show the Bend La Pine School District was one of the top growth districts in the state with a little more than a two-percent student increase over last year: “It seems that we are getting some kids from out of state again, coming in from California. It also appears we may have gotten a slight increase of kids moving from private school into our public system.” Bend La Pine Deputy Superintendent John Rexford says this returns the District back to their forecast growth after no growth last year.  He says if the District continues to grow up to 2 ½% per year, then the District may have to look at additional middle school capacity in three to five years. However, he says the District will wait to see if the growth continues.
