North Adams Public Schools Seeks Volunteers

Print Story | Email Story
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — North Adams Public Schools is establishing a roster of volunteers for a variety of opportunities in grades PK-12.
 
Volunteer opportunities will vary with regard to time commitment and age groups of students.
 
Opportunities can be tailored to meet all interests of all parties and will consist of both short-term and longer-term commitments. 
 
Opportunities that are low commitment but high-impact arise all the time and are a great fit for those that are only available for only a few hours a year.
 
Volunteer opportunities may include helping students with projects, reading to classes, sharing experiences, sitting on panels, assisting with upcoming events, or other needs to help students thrive.
 
Interested individuals can fill out the volunteer form located on the North Adams Public Schools' website at www.napsk12.org/VolunteerSignUp. The form will help North Adams Public School match opportunities with areas of interest and expertise.
 
Approval to volunteer is contingent upon passing a CORI check and potentially a SORI check. A member of North Adams Public Schools will reach out to those on the volunteer roster as opportunities that meet specific interests and needs arise.
 
Questions about the form or volunteering with North Adams Public Schools can be emailed to familysupports@napsk12.org.

North Adams Council to Vote on Greylock School Project

By Tammy DanielsiBerkshires Staff
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council will take up a borrowing authorization for the $65 million Greylock School project at a special meeting on Monday. 
 
If it is approved, there will be a ballot vote for a debt exclusion in September for the city's $20 million portion of the cost.  
 
The committee is planning a full-court press to convince citizens of the need for a new Greylock School to replace the closed 1965 building and the deteriorating Brayton Elementary that needs millions in repairs. 
 
Mayor Jennifer Macksey said it was important for the members of the School Building Committee to attend Monday's meeting to show their support for the project. The project designers from TSKP Studios will be on hand to answer questsions as will the project's financial adviser. 
 
"It's an exciting night. It's really the first night that we publicly showcase this project to the City Council," the mayor said at the committee's meeting early this week. "We really need the School Building Committee there ... 
 
"You may not have a speaking role, you may want to speak, but we need to really show the support of the council and also really praise the hard work that this committee has been doing."
 
The School Department has created several videos including a show on Northern Berkshire Community Television, presentations, a FAQ and a website about the project.
