Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) provides differentiated instruction for students with superior ability and high-level academic performance. This year all 3rd grade students will have the opportunity to take the GATE test. Testing information was presented to 3rd grade parents at Back to School Night.
Teachers and/or parents may nominate students for GATE identification for those students who are in grades 4 or 5 and who have NOT been tested in Fremont. Those students will be assessed with an ability test during March. A letter will be mailed to the student’s home address with an assigned testing session and for parental written permission.
For those students who have been tested, Teacher and/or Parent Nomination forms are accepted for review under other identification criteria. Additional information and forms are available in your child’s school office or may be downloaded from the Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) Department’s website. If you believe that your child may require GATE services and is in the 4th, 5th, or 6th grade, submit a completed nomination form to the GATE Office, 4210 Technology Drive, Fremont, CA 94538, between Nov. 1, 2012 and Jan. 15, 2013. Faxes will not be accepted.
