NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — It takes a village to get a load of books from North Adams to an African village.

Brayton Elementary School first-grade teachers Elizabeth Patenaude and Jacqueline Thomas recently spearheaded an effort to send 60 reading textbooks to Chesegem Primary School in Eldoret South, Kenya. They were assisted by Leon Aalberts, a retired teach and minister from Williamstown, as well as Williams College student and Kenyan native Felix Biwott, and two classes of eager first-grade students who not only got to learn about geography but also about the joy of giving back.

The project started back in November when Patenaude and Thomas found out that the curriculum was being

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — It's official: Mount Greylock Regional School's class of 2018 will not get to take any classes in the new high school.   The district's School Building Committee on Tuesday learned that the construction schedule is being adjusted to reflect the reality that the building will not be ready for occupancy during April recess, as planners originally hoped.   Instead, the school will finish the academic year in its current one-story structure and begin 2018-19 with classes in its new three-story addition.   The change was forced by difficulty getting subcontractors on site to maintain the project's ambitious timeline, the committee

LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — Some town officials are urging the Mount Greylock Transition Committee to hold firm on tuition rates.   Members of the Board of Selectmen and the Finance Committee had fought for years over the price point of tuition and last year finally reach an agreement with school officials.   Last March, the School Committee adopted a policy that set the tuition rate at the per pupil expenditure as set by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education each year. That policy doubled the town's tuition rate from $8,734 to more than $17,000.   But since then, the town voted to expand the district to be one with Mount Greylock Regional and Williamstown
