The Bend La Pine Schools Boundary Committee has another week to think things over. In the words of Superintendent Ron Wilkinson, the Middle School Boundary Committee is in overtime, but he doesn't want the Committee to rush into a decision. Still, the clock is ticking because of planning deadlines for the upcoming school year.    The Committee took a straw poll vote Wednesday and 14 of the 25 members voted for option 1-B; which is Pine Ridge students going to Pilot Butte as well Ensworth kids having a choice between Polit Butte or Sky View Middle Schools. Kevin Garig is the Principal at Pine Ridge and a member of the Boundary Committee: “I do think there has been a good amount of public input. There is a point we have to take that input and move ahead, and do we keep talking about it or make a decision, and I think we are at a point where we make a decision.” The Committee talked about getting more information on the number of parents affected by the TAG or Talented and Gift Program and how that looks by moving some students to Pilot Butte Middle School. The Committee will meet again next Wednesday at 4pm and the pressure is one for them to make a recommendation to the District at that time.
