This is one of those uncomfortable things many don’t like to either acknowledge or talk about.
A good discussion on the RealCrozetVA Facebook page led to this:
“Disadvantaged” students are those who receive free and reduced price meals under the federal program.
There are nearly 3,000 kids enrolled at Crozet schools; of those, these are the number of “disadvantaged” at each school:
– 95 kids at Crozet Elementary
– 109 kids at Brownsville Elementary
– 100 kids at Henley Middle
– 100 kids at WAHS
That’s 400 kids!
Think about that. And then consider donating funds or food to the schools.
Or the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank while you’re in the giving mood.
