NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The School Committee on Tuesday approved beginning the process toward renovating Greylock School.

A statement of interest detailing structural deficiencies of the nearly 60-year-old school and their impact on educational program will be submitted to the Massachusetts School Building Authority if the City Council also approves the action next week.

School officials were quick to point out that the application does not mean a school project anytime soon — nor does it obligate either the city or MSBA to anything.

"Greylock was potentially one of our projects," said Mayor Richard Alcombright, referring to Greylock having been a possible option in

Malkas said she had spoken separately with School Committee members about ways to consolidate resources before bringing the proposal to the subcommittee. There were two options: moving the preK
