    PVUSD ASP serves a predominantly agricultural area. While neighboring cities enjoy relative prosperity, the farming towns of Watsonville, Freedom, and Pajaro, where most of the after school programs are located, are pockets of striking poverty. Census 2017 data places the poverty rate for Watsonville families (population 54,098) at 27 % (over double the county average); in Pajaro, the overall poverty rate is 29.5%. Watsonville’s unemployment rate stands at 18.9%, over double the county average. Other rural Census Designated Places (CDPs) served by our ELP also show high unemployment, e.g. Freedom at 16.1% and Amesti at 16.1%. As many of our residents are migrant workers, unemployment rises higher in winter. The cost of living in our area means that a family of four would need an annual income over $66,000 to meet basic needs, In Pajaro, the median household income is just over $39,000 and in Watsonville it is $46,675. Very high rents ($1,730/ month for a two-bedroom apartment) result in crowded living arrangements without adequate space and quiet for study and homework.
