By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
04:14AM / Monday, June 18, 2018

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The most recent high water mark for enrollment in the Pittsfield Public Schools was 7,000 students in 1996.

That number is down to 5,491. Schools like Morningside had 658 students then and now have just 374. Conte had 540 and now has 367.
