Approximately 40 to 60 Pittsfield Public Schools educators will soon have their “pink slips” rescinded, according to the superintendent of schools Jason McCandless Wednesday.

The Berkshire Eagle reports that McCandless emphasized the need to “keep as many people as we can humanly keep” as the state moves toward a possible reopening of in-person school this fall.

School officials in Pittsfield have made some preliminary plans for back to school this fall even though much uncertainty still surrounds the reopening of school buildings. IBerkshires.com reports that Superintendent Jason McCandless gave the School Committee an update Wednesday.
Although planning to fully reopen, McCandless said the state Department Elementary and Secondary Education is requiring school districts to also develop plans for a partial reopening and continued remote learning.
