It’s the final chapter in an emotional local debate over middle school boundaries. The Bend - La Pine Schools Superintendent is accepting the recommendation from the Boundary Advisory Committee with minor modifications.  That means Pine Ridge Elementary School students are now destined for Pilot Butte instead of Cascade Middle School. Hours of meetings, public testimony, emails and feedbacks are now over, and the overall decision of the boundary committee stands: students from Pine Ridge will now feed into Pilot Butte instead of Cascade Middle School. The Committee also recommend that student currenlty enrolled at a middle school be grandfathered in; allowed to stay until they complete middle school. Superintendent Ron Wilkinson modified this idea by agreeing ot provide transportation for those student for two years. Typically the District doesn't provide busing for student living outside their attendance area. Wilkinson says every boundary process is difficult and emotional because parents, student and the community feel very strongly about their neighborhood schools. He says he's read every email and comment and believes this is the right choice for the district.  Bend La Pine Superintendent has given the OK to the middle school boundaries recommended by the Committee. Students living in the Ensworth Elementary attendance area have the choice of Pilot Butte or Sky View Middle School, but transportation is only provided to Sky View.
