SHEFFIELD — Amid a whistleblower lawsuit, multiple open meeting law violations and district consolidation talks, according to one school committee member, the Southern Berkshire school district is in an “existential crisis.”

David Travis, chairman of the Executive Evaluation Subcommittee and a member of the school committee, spoke at the conclusion of the subcommittee’s meeting on Oct. 24 about the current state of the Southern Berkshire Regional School District (SBRSD).

“I think everybody in this room is hoping and praying for saving SBRSD,” said Travis. “We are in an existential crisis. We have all eight towns pushing for consolidation. For those who think that the solution is removing the present administration, I just wonder … if you want to save SBRSD, I’m not sure how it would be possible [that] there would be another superintendent who would like to walk into this job.”
