South Egremont school takes center stage during regional roundtable talk

SHEFFIELD — As the South Egremont Village School repair project moves into the bidding phase, questions regarding a minimum number of students needed to make its future program financially feasible are being raised.

During a much-needed and cathartic regional round table conversation between representatives from the Southern Berkshire Regional School District and its five towns at Mount Everett Regional High School on Nov. 30, a discussion about the historic two-room schoolhouse took center stage.
Egremont Selectman George McGurn told those gathered that his town wants an educational program running in its school come fall 2018.

“Egremont’s position is very clear,” McGurn said. “There will be an educational program in the school.”
