2018-2019 PUSD GATE TESTING INFORMATION:  PUSD is accepting requests for evaluation for Gifted and Talented Education (GATE).  GATE involves instruction for exceptionally able students in grades 3-8 whose cognitive needs may require a modified classroom program to accommodate their learning differences.  Students in grades 2nd – 7th may be tested. The following general guidelines may be used as you consider the appropriateness of GATE testing for your child:

  1. advanced comprehension and a very fast pace of learning for new concepts
  2. a need for complexity and intensity in the learning environment
  3. the desire to think deeply shown through the ability to make connections and generalizations across subjects/disciplines

If you would like your child tested for possible GATE identification, please visit the GATE webpage onhttps://onlinereg.powayusd.com/GateSurvey/ . You must complete the request online before November 30, 2018 . If you have any questions about GATE testing, please talk to your child’s teacher during parent/teacher conferences.

Your child’s school will contact you following the Winter Break, to inform you of the exact date of GATE testing at your child’s school. Students will be excused from class for approximately one hour in order to participate in testing during the regular school day. The testing window is between Jan. 14-18, 2018.

Notifications regarding GATE testing results will be mailed to parents in April, 2019.
