The latest head count shows 16-thosuand 860 students in the district.  And that's up 260 students from last year.

 

It is up one thousand students since the fall of 2009 when the district saw its first enrollment dip since 1986.

 

This growth trend is expected to continue for the next decade.  It is expected to jump by three thosuand students during that time.

 

This growth does create challenges for the district.  17 of the district's 27 schools are near or over capacity this fall.

 

Bend LaPine plans to build a new elementary and middle school as early as the fall of 2015.
