  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Originally called the North Adams Normal School, Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts was founded to train public school teachers.   True to that heritage, today's MCLA faculty members take seriously their role as educators. That is the message the college's 12th president received when he arrived on campus earlier this year.   "To a department, the faculty talked about their commitment to students achieving their academic goals, which isn't always the case," James F. "Jaime" Birge said recently. "Faculty aren't always as uniformly committed to that purpose as our faculty here. Literally, every

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — There are some staffing changes ahead for the North Adams Public Schools — including the search for a new principal for Drury High School.

Colegrove Park Elementary School Principal Shelley Fachini is moving to special education, and Drury High Principal Amy Meehan will be replacing her at "Old Drury."

That will leave a vacancy at Drury High School that will be filled by an interim principal.  

"It's a domino effect," said Superintendent of School Barbara Malkas on Thursday.

Malkas said it was decided to split a preK-K special education coordinator into two positions after discussion with retired Superintendent James

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — McCann Technical School administrators are preparing for the upcoming school year and welcoming a small uptick in incoming freshmen.  

Principal Justin Kratz told the School Committee on Thursday that 144 eighth-graders have shown an interest in going to McCann.

Although 144 students committed to McCann, only 117 actually sent in the paperwork solidifying their attendance. Kratz said this is normal.

"This is pretty typical. Right now we have 117 kids that have actually sent in their paperwork," the principal said. "I am hoping we will be high 120s, low 130s but until all of the dust settles, we won’t know for sure. Some students might
