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