One Mount Greylock School Building Committee member pressed hard last week to make sure the new school is part of the digital age – in every sense of the word. reports that Richard Cohen pushed back hard against a decision not to purchase classroom whiteboards that are compatible with the touch-screen capability in the projectors the district has purchased — challenging both the decision itself and the process by which it was made.

Cohen, who has called in the past for greater committee oversight of purchases in the $64 million addition/renovation project, convinced his colleagues Tuesday to appoint a working group to gather information on whether the whiteboards already purchased by the district can be switched out without adding undue cost or creating a schedule delay in the project.
