Jimmy Ronayne CI 295, Sect. 6 February 26, 2008 Field Trip #2 Task 1. East Side Elementary is a one of two elementary schools of the greater Johnstown school district. The ethnic breakdown of the students is 65% white and 35% minority. According to greatschools.com, they average about 52 % proficient on the reading PSSA, 56% on math, and the 46% of the 5 th graders scored proficient on the writing section. All of the grade averages were below the state average for the proficiency. About 75% of the students are economically disadvantage, decided by whether they qualify for free lunch or not, and a third of them are special needs. The district spends about $9,540 per pupil and has a student to teacher ratio to 15 to 1. 2. Unlike the last school I visited, this school showed now of the stats that I looked before I went. There seemed to be more white children than just 65%. Also there were few signs that students were coming from an economically disadvantage. Also the school seemed to be in better condition that would suggest that the area is getting more money from property task. I did notice however that many of students were struggling with the materiel they were learning for the PSSA’s and much of he instruct was targeted to the PSSA’s.
