• The District's Gifted and Talented Education (G.A.T.E.) program is in transition. As a result of the State's new Local Control Funding Formula, GATE is no longer funded as a categorical program. Regardless, the District intends to continue identifying students for GATE eligibility and offering a limited range of services and supports. If you would like to learn more about GATE, please contact the principal of the site that your student attends.
