Gifted and Talented Magnet Program 2019 – 2020

tag

2019 - 2020

Referrals are now being accepted for possible participation in the GATE magnet program (3rd – 5th grades) for the upcoming school year of 2019-2020. The classes serve highly academic/creative students by providing differentiated instruction and an opportunity to interact with ability level peers.  A teacher within the GATE Program provides the students full time, daily instruction.  In addition, these magnet classrooms have regularly scheduled Art, P.E., Computer, Music, Library, and Counseling classes.

Students are selected based on indicators of success in the program using specific GATE testing criteria. A combination of verbal and non-verbal assessments have been chosen to best identify highly qualified students through a non-biased, holistic manner. If deemed appropriate once testing is completed, recommendations for admittance into the GATE Program will be made by the GATE Committee. Equal access is provided to culturally diverse students, students of different economic levels, and students with special needs.

For more information about the program, please contact Liann Brenneman at (307)721-4410 or lbrenneman@acsd1.org

The referral deadline is February 20, 2019.      GATE REFERRAL FORM 2019 - 2020
