PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Ckahlysia Walker's grandmother was pretty much destined to fail.    It was some 60 years ago in South Carolina when she found out she was pregnant in an environment rigged against her. She hadn't finished high school. She left that behind and moved to New Jersey, started her family there, and ultimately got a job she could work at for the next 30 years to support her family.    Last year, Ckahlysia hadn't completed high school either but she didn't face the same situation as her grandmother. She listened to her grandmother's stories and wisdom and Walker made a promise to her grandmother that she'd

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. Reid Middle School had 803 students compared to 552 today.    "We are 1,500 students lighter than we were in '96 and '97," Superintendent Jason McCandless said.   The numbers raise a pretty basic question: Does the city need to have so many individual schools? The district has 12 schools to support 5,491 students. Is it time to consolidate?   "I would say at this point, no. Now is not
