Students from grade 3 to 7 in Pleasanton Unified School District (PUSD) are offered the opportunity to be tested at least once for GATE identification.
All students in grade 3 will be assessed unless an opt out form is received by the Curriculum and Instruction team. Students in grades 4 to 7 must be nominated by a teacher, parent, or other school staff to be tested for GATE services.
Parents may nominate their child by submitting a completed Parent Nomination / Questionnaire / Permission for GATE to your child’s school or to the Curriculum department. Parents wishing to nominate their child are encouraged to talk with their child’s teacher about the benefits and implications of GATE testing. Go to Parent Nomination for GATE form to get access to the nomination form and feel free to visit the district web site for additional information.
