Chapman Elementary School
Chapman Elementary is a Title I Kindergarten through sixth grade school located in Chico, California, a suburban area surrounded by agricultural land. More than 90 percent of Chapman's 350 students are considered socioeconomically disadvantaged, and with large Asian and Hispanic populations, more than half of its students are still struggling to learn English. While this provides our students with a unique opportunity to learn about other cultures, it also presents unique challenges to educators.
Over the past few years, the Chico Unified School District has had to make some tough decisions regarding closing some of its elementary schools. While Chapman Elementary was lucky enough to make the cut and keep its doors open, funding for programs has suffered district-wide. On top of that, Chapman’s scores lag behind those of other schools, partly because of the language barriers we encounter.
A book donation from PaperBackSwap.Com will allow our staff to encourage students to learn English and gain literacy. Any help you can provide us is greatly appreciated!
