G.A.T.E.- Gifted and Talented Education

GATE Program:

Students are identified each fall for the GATE program in accordance with district protocols for testing. Most students in 2nd grade are tested, as are students in grades 3-5 that have met specific requirements established by the district and whose teachers have referred them for testing using the appropriate documentation. Once a child is in the GATE program, subsequent testing is not necessary.  GATE students in grades 3-5 are clustered into classes with GATE certified teachers for differentiated instruction.
