On February 20, 2008, I completed my first school observation at Rodgers Forge Elementary School. When I first walked into the school building, I noticed the main office on my right and the schools’ awards and certifications on the left. When I walked into the office, I was kindly greeted by one of the office secretaries where she told me to sign in as a “Visitor” as well as telling me where the classroom was located. This is a very important aspect of security because not only did the secretary ask me to sign in, but she also asked for a proof of identification so I gave her my Towson Unversity Identification card. As I walked through the school hallways, I noticed a seating area with four chairs, a table and television for visitors to sit and wait. Surrounding the seating area I was saw several different art projects completed by the students. This tells me that the school is very proud of their students’ work and they want all their guests and visitors to know that as well. Rodgers Forge Elementary School is a large community. It consists a total of 490 students with an average class size of 22.9 students. The school’s minority group enrollment contains 20% of the whole student population, specifically including Asians, African Americans, Hispanics and American Indians. Roughly 3.9% of students are entitled to Free/Reduced meals and 11.5% receive special education services; the students that take ESOL (English Speakers Of Other Languages) represent 5.8% of the student population (Baldwin). The school has several different handbooks that cater to the students, parents, families and teachers. The student handbook explains several different aspects and services concerning school safety. Some of the services that the school provides to students include: student conferences, counseling, evaluations, home visits, progress 2
