SHEFFIELD — The Southern Berkshire School Committee took the next step in creating a Regional School District Planning Board to study a potential consolidation with the Berkshire Hills Regional School District at its meeting last week.

During the meeting on Thursday, Jan. 30, the school committee unanimously passed a resolution to form the planning board comprising towns of Sheffield, Monterey, New Marlborough, Alford and Egremont.

If approved by all entities involved, the 24-person planning committee would include eight three-person committees, with the Berkshire Hills district represented by Great Barrington, Stockbridge and West Stockbridge.

The resolution came in response to a letter from Nadine Hawver, chairperson of the 8 Town School Consolidation Committee, which was previously formed to explore the possibility of consolidating the two local districts.
