To ensure equity among students, all 1st and 3rd grade SCUSD students were screened for possible Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) services. In 1st grade, the district utilizes the Naglieri Non-Verbal Ability Test (NNAT2). In 3rd grade the district utilizes the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT).
Notification of GATE Screening results and Identification for GATE services will happen by mail in April. All families, whose children participated in NNAT or CogAT screening will receive notification of their children’s scores and GATE Identification Status.
