Note: 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.
Adams Corner began as an OIME program (Open Individualization for Multi-handicapped Education), funded by Title VI, P.L. 91230, and served approximately 32 students, ages 11-16.
After the program moved to the Brook Hill Building in 19 77, it was known both as Adams Corner and Brook Hill Special Education Center.
In March 1980, Adams Corner was discontinued, and the remaining 17 pupils were transferred to Westhampton.
