If your child is having problems with learning in middle school, write a reqest to Ms. Muccino for an evaluation before they enter this school following the AZ FIND guidelines @ www.ade.az.gov/ESS. Although there are great sports and music at Chaparral, I found the need to have The Parent Information Network help me get the support and the PIN rep can meet to help you get help for your child. A great source www.wrightslaw.com helped us so much. With the high level of parent involvement needed, these sources make a big difference for success at CHS.
