NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Students will get a full two weeks off for Christmas at the end of the year — but they'll have to make the extra two days off up elsewhere.   The School Committee earlier this month approved a 2019-20 calendar that schedules a holiday vacation that runs from Dec. 23, 2019, to Jan. 3, 2020.    The extra days are a result of how the Christmas and New Year's Day holidays fall in the middle of the week.    "We had two versions of the calendar, as is the practice in North Adams, presented to the North Adams Teachers Association, and we had a vote and this calendar was overwhelmingly approved," said Superintendent Barbara

While the youths lead a NBCC forum every year, usually they pick a topic. This year, however, NBCC Executive Director Amber Besaw said, the topic came out the needs assessment
