The district provides a special program for students who are intellectually gifted. Children in grades 1 – 7 who perform extremely well on the district-administered Otis-Lennon School Ability Test and other standardized measurements may qualify for placement in the Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) program. If you think your child might qualify for this program and would like to have him/her assessed, please contact Debbie Bartlett in the GATE Office, 964-8888, Extension 2036, beginning Thursday, November 1, 2012 to request a Permission to Test Form. The last day to request permission forms is Tuesday, December 11, 2012 4:30p.m. Please note that district policy limits the number of times a student may be assessed. Students may be assessed a maximum of two times between first and seventh grade. Due to the limited opportunities to test for the GATE program, you may wish to discuss with your child's teacher at your parent conference in December if this would be an appropriate time to have your child assessed.
Testing will take place between January and very early February 2013. Children who qualify for placement in the program will be placed in the fall of the 2013-14 school.
