Less than two years following a controversial reconfiguration of classrooms throughout the North Adams school district — and the closure of one elementary school building — a member of the North Adams school board has proposed another realignment of building uses.
Three surveys of 1,136 people in the Adams Central area were recently taken by AC's curriculum director, Anna Spalding, to gauge the reaction to the policy begun last August of delaying the start of school each Wednesday for 30 minutes so teachers can have a weekly 45-minute professional development period.
Caylie Yoder last summer saw first-hand the lingering devastation caused by the 2008 hurricane on the island nation of Haiti. She will be returning next month as part of a contingent from South Adams Schools that is traveling to Haiti with a water purification system that will improve the lives of residents there.
Yoder, a senior at South Adams, went to Haiti last summer with a group from the Bridge Community Church. She told members of the Berne City Council at their May 9 meeting of the lack of basic sanitation and clean water.
