The pressure is on for the Bend-La Pine Middle School Boundary Committee. They meet this afternoon after delaying a vote on a final decision last week. The Committee is trying to solve an overcrowding problem at Cascade Middle School, and an idea to re-route Pine Ridge Elementary students away from Cascade and toward Pilot Butte Middle School ignited a controversy. Julianne Repman with Bend-La Pine Schools says middle school students will get a good education in Bend no matter which school they attend.  "If you take our middle schools here, and we have 5 middle schools, and you compare them against middle schools in the State that have significantly similar demographics, they are actually outscoring their peers in the comparison schools statewide." Parents have also mentioned transportation issues and the fact that 70% of the population at Pilot Butte is on free or reduced lunches. The Committee wanted to take in more public feedback and then hopefully present their final proposal today.
