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 2024.
Grade 3-7 GATE Screening (September - December 2023)
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.
