To ensure equity among students, all 1st and 3rd grade SCUSD students will be 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).
GATE Screening happens in your child’s classroom, at all SCUSD Elementary and K8 schools. The testing window is January 11th-29th.
