Bend parents upset over changed school boundaries showed up at last night's School Board meeting to complain. Last month, the Board decided to send Pine Ridge Elementary students to Pilot Butte Middle School instead of Cascade Middle School, to help ease overcrowding there. Parents like Jay Kolar feels there will be too many low income children concentrated at Pilot Butte: “One thing that came from all of this is that there is now going to be discussion in respect to our “SES”, which is kids of reduced free lunches. And the impact that has, concentrating on the one school versus having diversity across the schools.” Deputy Superintendent John Rexford and Superintendent Ron Wilkinson refute the complaints the process wasn't open: “This is a process we've used over 20 years in the School District and a variety of processes. I didn't really make it up last week. There were plenty of opportunities for individuals to have input into the process. The media covered virtually every single meeting and reported on that.” The School Board voted 5 to 2 to uphold the new boundaries.   Board members Beth Bagley and Nori Juba were opposed.
