Much of the history of the Richmond Public Schools was recorded in the context of a segregated society, and the reader should readily discern
between pre- and post-desegregation observations. The terms "black," "colored," "Negro," and "white" in this booklet should not be considered
offensive as they have been used according to the custom of the particular period. Since 1962, the division has omitted such racial
designations from its reports and publications.
According to the 1871-72 annual report, Jonesville School was a rented facility with a monthly rental of $10.
