Berkshire Hills Regional School District Outlines Learning Plan Through End Of 2020

Nov 25, 2020

Unlike other regional districts, the Berkshire Hills Regional School District says it does not plan to revert to entirely remote learning in the weeks after Thanksgiving.

The district – which represents Great Barrington, Stockbridge and West Stockbridge – has three schools and around 1200 students. Superintendent Peter Dillon says the in week after the holiday, elementary school students will continue in-person education, with all middle and high school students except those with higher needs continuing to work remotely.

“Our 3rd and 4th graders are in two days a week and they’re working remotely three days a week, and our initial plan is to bring them back – the 3rd and 4th graders – to being in four days a week starting on December 7th,” he told WAMC.

Pittsfield has suspended in-person education at least until December while Lenox is remote through mid-January.
