BArT Enrolling New Students in Grades Six through 10

Print Story | Email Story

ADAMS, Mass. — The Berkshire Arts & Technology Charter Public School, a tuition-free public school serving students in grades six through 12 from a number of Massachusetts communities within the Berkshires, is currently enrolling new students in grades six through 10 for the 2017-18 school year.

Recent action by BART's Board of Trustees and by the Massachusetts Commissioner of Elementary and Secondary Education resulted in a change in the school's enrollment policy. Previously, students new to BART could be admitted to grades six through nine. Now, however, students may be admitted into BArT to grade 10 as well.


"As a college preparatory charter public school, BArT provides an engaging educational experience that readies students for college," said Dr. Jay White, the executive director of BArT. "Admitting students as late as grade 10 permits us to offer BArT's marvelous college prep experience to more students while ensuring the students are in the program long enough to benefit fully from it."

The next enrollment deadline for 2017-18 will be Friday, Aug. 9, at noon. More information on BART’s enrollment and lottery process can be found online. Interested families should contact BArT Enrollment Counselor, Monique Nottke, by telephone at 413-743-7311 (ext. 732) or by email.

Solid Waste District Considers Accepting North Adams

By Jack GuerinoiBerkshires Staff
ADAMS, Mass. — Northern Berkshire Solid Waste Management has entered into conversations with North Adams about rejoining the district.
 
Williamstown representative Tim Kaiser told the commission Thursday that he and program director Linda Cernik have met with city officials about re-entering the district.
 
"At the request of the city we had a meeting ... and they are interested in rejoining the district," Kaiser said. "They expressed that they have the capability of running pretty much all of their operations now but they are weak in areas that they feel we are strong in."
 
Kaiser said the city is specifically interested in the coordinated events, outreach, and educational opportunities the district offers. The waste district had come up at a city Public Services Committee meeting in May about composting and education. He did not see a downside at this point and noted that if North Adams were to join, it would become the district's largest member.
