Non-Loudoun Schools


1938/39  –  African-Americans attended schools in Fairfax.   18 attended Floris and 22 attended Oak Grove, both in the Herndon area of that county.  At this point, we don’t know why the Loudoun students attended Floris or Oak Grove.  (Source: LCPS Archives:  Distribution of Negro Children of School Age, County Loudoun, Session 1938-1939, pg. 2.)

From 1930, when Oak Grove was built until 1958 when Douglass Elementary in Leesburg was constructed, “Loudoun County made payments to Fairfax County to offset the cost of schooling Loudoun children at Oak Grove Elementary.”
