Thank you for your interest in Central Berkshire Regional School District.

Intra-District Program

Intra-District Application

It is the position of the School Committee and the Administration that each of the three elementary schools in the Central Berkshire Regional District offers a high quality, well rounded, and educationally sound program, and are appropriately staffed with high quality teachers and support personnel.

It is intended that all residents of the member towns of Becket, Cummington, Dalton, Hinsdale,
Peru, Washington, and Windsor in grades kindergarten to five, inclusive, will receive their
education in facilities located within the district and, initially, in the following schools:

  • Becket and Washington residents at the Becket Washington School;
  • Hinsdale and Peru residents at the Kittredge Elementary School;
  • Cummington, Windsor, and Dalton residents at the Craneville Elementary School.

A student may be permitted to transfer from the school to which the student is to attend under
Section 6130.2 of the Central Berkshire Regional School District Policy Manual, to an elementary school within the district upon request by his/her custodial parent(s) and/or guardian(s) and written approval by the Superintendent of Schools (or his/her
designee) provided that:

  1. The Superintendent determines that such a reassignment is prudent and can be accomplished;
  2. There is sufficient capacity in the receiving classroom to accommodate the incoming
    student (such capacity to be determined AFTER the Non-Resident Student provisions
    of Policy 6125 have been applied);
  3. The Principal after meeting with the requested custodial parent(s) and/or guardian(s)
    determines the requested intra-district transfer is in the best interest of the student.
  4. The School Committee reserves the right to review class sizes across the district’s four
    elementary schools and use Intra-district transfer of students to adjust, if necessary, class sizes from school to school.
