Universal GATE Screening Notification Letters
Elementary and K-8 Schools

Principal Bulletin Action Required - December 21, 2018

GATE Screening will happen between January 14 and February 22 for all 1st and 3rd grade students across the district.

Letters notifying families about the testing window and the GATE screening process have been developed for distribution. Letters, once copied at the school site, must be distributed to ALL 1st and 3rd grade families. This may happen via back-pack method and the Messenger feature in Infinite Campus. Families must receive notification letters before Winter Vacation (December 21, 2018).

Opt Out Forms should only be available by request in the school office.

Opt Out Forms should NOT be copied on the back side of the Testing Notification Letter. Office staff, when distributing Opt Out Forms, should clarify with parents that they are waiving the opportunity to have their child screened for GATE services.

Original Opt Out Forms must be sent to the GATE Office by Friday, January 11, 2019.
