WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Without an actionable measure to vote, the Mount Greylock School Committee on Thursday spent nearly an hour talking about the athletic field decision that will be left to the next iteration of the panel.   And three members blocked a proposal to collect data to help inform that decision.   The committee learned Thursday that its architects had not yet given the district a price for drafting new detailed design documents needed for a request for proposals to do upgrades to Mount Greylock's athletic fields.   Those same architects also advised the committee not to review potential "value engineering" deductions from the project or

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Mount Greylock Regional School District lost more than 5 percent of its student population from the 2019-20 academic year, but the ones who remain report general satisfaction with the hybrid start to the school year — at least in the general education population.   On a night when the School Committee devoted nearly all of its internal conversation to the question of whether the district should pay for an artificial turf field at the middle-high school, the administration focused its attention on the start of the school year and the annual school improvement plans that are required by state law.   Interim Superintendent Robert Putnam also gave
