Bend La Pine Schools Superintendent Ron Wilkinson says when it comes to allowing students to transfer to different schools, he tries to be accommodating.  Currently the School District is reviewing the boundaries for the middle schools: “Whenever that conversation comes up; we also get into the conversation about how we honor parental choice to a very high level in our District in terms of being able to enroll their students in schools outside of their neighborhood if it meets their family needs for various reasons.” A recent report shows some of the top reasons that students transfer to a different middle school. One favorite was due to convenience and transportation. For example: a parent who worked near one of the middle schools so it was easier to visit the class and drop off and pick up their child. Other parents cited a recent move or boundary change. And finally, some students chose to go to Cascade Middle School to attend class in the Talented and Gifted Program.  A handful of students transfer into Pilot Butte from other schools because they experience bullying and other social problems at other schools. Wilkinson was a guest this morning on KBND’s “Your Town.”
