Gifted and Talented Education (GATE)

GATE Mission Statement

In the Fullerton School District we believe all students, including the gifted, develop to their full potential only when their special strengths are identified and supported throughout their lives. We are therefore committed to providing differentiated, in-depth, complex, and accelerated opportunities for our GATE students.
GATE Resources
Grade 2 GATE Screening (September - October 2020)
The Fullerton School District GATE department screens all FSD students in Grade 2 for gifted services. Parents have the opportunity to "Opt Out" of testing by signing the Opt Out Form sent home with your child in September. Screening will take place in the child's second grade classroom. Parents will be notified of screening results by mail.  Final GATE Qualification letters will be mailed to home addresses in January 2021.

Grade 3-7 GATE Screening (September - November 2020)

FSD Parents may request GATE screening annually during Fall Parent Teacher Conferences. Students may only be tested a total of three (3) times in the Fullerton School District. A request for GATE screening does not guarantee the student will be tested for GATE. Parents must submit the request for screening form to their child’s classroom teacher by September 30, 2020 at 4:00PM. Final GATE Qualification letters will be mailed to home addresses in January 2021.
