A boundary recommendation has finally come from the Bend La Pine School District Boundary Committee. After considerable discussion the committee voted to forward a middle school boundary proposal to the Superintendent: “The committee moved towards what we are calling a minimal consensus to take forward a recommendation to move the Pine Ridge attendance area to Pilot Butte from the Cascade attendance area.   The Committee struggled over that decision.” Deputy Superintendent John Rexford says about three quarters of the Committee voted to move forward with Option 1-B.  However, two members on the Committee said they are strongly opposed and would attempt to stop the acceptance of the proposed boundary change. One of the biggest concerns is the belief this will make the percentage of low-income kids at Pilot Butte higher than at any other Bend middle school. Several Committee members said they struggled with not coming up with a better socio-economic mix.   Rexford will draft a recommendation to Superintendent Ron Wilkinson and Committee members will have a chance to review it before it is sent.
