The intent of the Berkshire County Education Task Force is to develop and recommend solutions that address the problem statement and specifically:

  • Improve access, diversity, breadth and quality of educational programs for children county-wide so they are fully prepared for college, career and a life here in the Berkshires,

  • Create economies of scale (financial savings) through new collaborations, technologies, partne

    rships, and regional agreements between towns/cities and districts

  • Advance new investments in collaborative solutions (ie. expanded pre-K programming, or special education services) that improve educational services and opportunities for children county-wide,

  • Maintain and honor the unique identity of each Berkshire community, ensuring citizens remain fully connected and engaged with their schools,

  • Reflect age appropriate social and learning practices, such as transportation/travel time and the number of school/grade transitions.
