Many budget cuts will affect students more than the City Council knows.

      The academies are a great thing that is pretty unique to Virginia. Loss of academy buses would lead to the end of academies.

      I attend the Virginia Academy for the Visual and Performing Arts at Salem High School. I, however, live in Pocahontas Village by Pembroke Mall. If the school board cuts the budget for academy transportation I will not be able to get to or home from school. My family owns one car and both my mom and my step dad work. They cannot get me to school and still get to work on time. Also, they don't get off of work until 5:30pm. There would be no way for me to get home. I will not accept going to my zoned school as an option. I go to Salem for a reason, to sing. I sing because it is the only way I feel comfortable expressing myself. Also, my ability to sing as well as I can is a gift. I want to learn how to use that gift to the best of its ability. I do not plan on letting it go to waste. On that note, from what I've heard, my peers at the academy don't plan on letting their gift go to waste either. Anyways, my point is, cutting the budget for academy transportation would greatly effect my life, as well as many others, in a very negative way.
