CLARKSBURG, Mass. — School officials will be speaking with Massachusetts School Building Authority later in September about enrollment numbers as they pursue a new or renovated school.   "This discussion will be on the number of kids the school will be rebuilt or renovated for," Superintendent Jonathan Lev told the School Committee on Thursday. "I think we will also be able to ask about feasibility costs."   A town meeting is expected to be held in October to determine if the school will move forward with a feasibility study.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Real progress can be seen at Colegrove Park Elementary School, even if it's not going fast enough for officials.

Completion of the renovation of the former middle and high school on East Main Street is still pegged for October. And Mayor Richard Alcombright said on Monday that the city is still holding general contractor PDS Engineering & Construction Inc. to the original July 22 date.  Penalties for the delay are pegged at $1,000 a day.

Still, much of the interior is nearing completion, the unsound southern gym wall has been rebuilt, the sidewalks are ready to be poured and the playground equipment has arrived.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Tuesday's opening semester breakfast at MCLA had an easily recognized theme: Transition.

The word popped up over and over as officials welcomed new staff, new faculty, new students, new programs, new [almost] buildings and a very new interim president to Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts.

The college had hoped to open this year of transition with a new president at the helm. Instead, James C. Clemmer, vice chairman of the board of trustees, is steering the school in the interim as it embarks on a second presidential search.

"I'm honored to serve in this role, I have a passion and a commitment to public higher education and a stronger passion
