WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — It was inevitable that someone was going to walk away disappointed from April 5 meeting of the Mount Greylock Regional School District Transition.   But the School Committee members themselves were not disappointed in the answers they got from the two finalists for the district's superintendent post.   And while the panel only could choose one of the candidates, there were a lot of similarities in the responses it received from Taconic High School Principal John Vosburgh and interim Superintendent Kimberley Grady, the eventual selection.   Each recognizes a growing need for emotional support for students, each has been challenged by the time

  WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — One Mount Greylock School Building Committee member pressed hard Tuesday to make sure the new school is part of the digital age … in every sense of the word digital.   Richard Cohen pushed back hard against a decision not to purchase classroom whiteboards that are compatible with the touchscreen capability in the projectors the district has purchased — challenging both the decision itself and the process by which it was made.   Cohen, who has called in the past for greater committee oversight of purchases in the $64 million addition/renovation project, convinced his colleagues Tuesday to appoint a working group to gather

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Mount Greylock Regional School District Transition Committee on Thursday decided to retain a Boston attorney to help the district protect its rights in regard to the $64 million addition/renovation project.   At issue currently is a change in the phasing of the project, which originally planned to have classes move into the new three-story academic wing during this month's vacation week.   This winter, it became apparent to the district that due in part to shortages of skilled tradespeople, that timeline would be impossible to keep. While the project remains on target for completion — including demolition of the existing academic
