WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — A deeply divided Mount Greylock School Building Committee on Wednesday declined to halt the installation of interactive whiteboards in order to give the district time to explore replacements.   Committee member Richard Cohen, who brought the issue to the committee's attention at its April 10 meeting, moved to direct the construction manager to stop taking delivery on whiteboards that he argued were inferior, keep any that are on the job site in their boxes and, instead, study whether the district should acquire boards that are both larger in display area and capable of allowing touch manipulation of images.   That motion failed on a vote of

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
