Berkshire Hills, So. Berkshire districts begin serious talks aimed at school consolidation

GREAT BARRINGTON — Berkshire Hills and Southern Berkshire regional school districts have taken the first formal steps to review a possible merger into a singular district that could potentially serve Pre-K through 12th-grade students.

After moving its meeting to 5 p.m. from 7 p.m., Southern Berkshire unanimously passed a motion in response to Berkshire Hills’ original proposal of a consolidated district for grades 9 through 12.

Jane Burke, chair of the school committee, and Jonathan Bruno, vice-chairman, then went to Berkshire Hills’ meeting to share the motion that calls for a town-centric approach and expanding from the original high school proposal to include Pre-K through 8th grade.

Burke hand-delivered the signed motion to Steve Bannon, chairman of the Berkshire Hills school committee, in what he would later call a “historic night.”

“It’s the most structured talks we’ve had,” Bannon told the Record.
