CLARKSBURG, Mass. — Clarksburg School will hold its annual back to school evening event on Sept. 21, but it will be a little different than in years past.

Usually, teachers would give a presentation on that night and set up conferences for the parent night in December.

"The teachers didn't think seeing parents once a year in December was enough," Principal Tara Barnes told the School Committee last week.

Instead, they asked that two parent conference nights be set up, one on Oct. 20 and another on March 23.

"They felt it was more meaningful," Barnes said. "But I thought it was important to do a back-to-school event. ...

"I think there are a lot

The application date is Aug. 31; the committee will review the applicants on Sept. 14 and three representatives — Superintendent Jon Lev, Select Board Chairman Jeffrey Levanos (as authorized by the board) and Laura Wood, filling the procurement seat on the committee — will meet with the Massachusetts School Building

  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
