More than 150 patrons of the Bend La Pine School District turned out Wednesday night to speak out about proposed boundary changes. Many of those in attendance are very opposed to proposed boundary changes. School officials say it's needed now to keep some schools from becoming overcrowded.   Some parents were very vocal and very opposed to the changes. One was Shelly Hall: “There was never any notice from the November press release that they said they sent out. And I know the media got it. There was nothing in the media, till the time the first meeting was held December 15th, notifying parents of the ability to be on the committee.”  Some feel proposed boundary changes should follow more geographic boundaries. Kids should attend school near where they are lived without being bussed across town. Some are concerned about economic factors.   Susan Jasiorkowsky says she is frustrated: “It affects so many families. Especially int his economy, especially the Pine Ridge area where there’s a low SES. ” Another meeting will be held today from four to 5pm at which time a decision may be made. Many in attendance last night want the District to get more public input and wait.
