Welcome to GATE

  • The GATE office assists schools to provide Gifted and Talented students and families with appropriate opportunities for identification, educational experiences, staff development, and parent/community participation. Parents are encouraged to participate in their school GATE Advisory Council as well as the District GATE Advisory Council (DGAC). Identified GATE students at each school participate in GATE activities during the school day. GATE students may also participate after school, during intersession, or summer break in school or District sponsored GATE activities.
