This report presents the results of a demographic study conducted by the Portland State University Population Research Center (PRC) for Bend‐La Pine Schools (BLS). The study includes analyses of population, housing and enrollment trends affecting the District in recent years, summaries of current and future housing development within BLS, and annual forecasts of district‐wide enrollment for the 20‐year period from 2022‐23 to 2041‐ 42 and individual school enrollments for the 10‐year period from 2022‐23 to 2031‐32. District‐wide high, middle, and low forecasts for 2022‐23 differ by how many how many of the students who left BLS schools during the COVID‐19 pandemic will return. Longerrun forecasts differ by expected migration levels and the shares of BLS kindergarten‐age residents enrolling in BLS kindergartens.
