Regionalization Studies

On September 17, 2013, the Mt. Greylock Regional School Committee voted unanimously to continue with the investigation of a PK-12 regionalization with Lanesborough and Williamstown Elementary School Districts.

Mt. Greylock subcommittees will work in the following areas:

1. The MG Education Subcommittee will look at empowering School Governance Councils in each of the three schools in order to address concerns around maintaining school identity and programming in individual schools.  School Councils can also be empowered to work with building leadership in submitting preliminary school budgets to the District Committee, further strengthening local control. School Committee member David Langston will chair this subcommittee.

2. The Finance Subcommittee will continue to evaluate budgets and create projections with the assistance of RDAC consultant Dave Tobin, Tri-Distric Business Manager Lynn Bassett, WES School Committee member Dan Caplinger, and Lanesborough Town Finance Committee member Al Terranova.   They will look at cost impact to the towns as well as potential savings.

3. The Regionalization Subcommittee and/or Main MG School Committee will focus on community outreach in both towns, coordinating with both the Education and Finance Subcommittees to share information from their work.  This committee will also be responsible for adjusting the draft regional agreement, as necessary.

Regionalization Studies were performed by the RDAC (Regional District Amendment Committee) in 2013.  Click here for a membership listing of the RDAC.
