After months of work, the Bend La Pine Middle School Boundary Committee has decided on a plan to alleviate overcrowding at Cascade Middle School. The Committee voted Wednesday for the plan that moves Pine Ridge students to Pilot Butte Middle School. Pine Ridge parent Lynn Broderick is not happy: “I think parents expect to have children go to school in their neighborhood that they purchased their home in. I think parents are already very pulled in many directions with after school activities and this is going to throw another wrench into that as well.” Fellow parent Julie Armstrong feels parents aren't giving Pilot Butte a chance: “Hopefully, some good will come about and some parents will appreciate what's going to happen and their kids will have a new experience.” Superintendent of Bend La Pine Schools Ron Wilkinson still needs to approve the plan.
