If you are interested in having your child participate in our GATE Program, please be aware of the following timeline:
All parent nights are held at the district office board room and start at 6:00 pm and end at 7:00 pm. All interested parents are invited to attend the October 15, to learn more about the district's program. Parents who already have children participating in GATE need not attend.
Thank you for your interest in our GATE program. We have closed the registration for this year's EUSD GATE assessment. We welcome you to have your student test next year if they will be in the third through seventh grade. Watch for an email invitation coming out in December 2019.
Thank you to all who were able to attend our 2018 GATE Parent Information Meeting! We have shared the PowerPoint as well as the timeline below for anyone who would like more information regarding our GATE program.
We believe that the innate abilities of gifted students must be developed and nurtured through participation in exciting and challenging instruction. They require modified, differentiated curriculum in order to ensure their growth and success. Differentiation for GATE students in the Eureka Union School District may include:
Modifying content (what students learn)
Modifying process (how students learn)
Modifying product (how students demonstrate their knowledge).
Students may be placed in an advanced mathematics class or reading group, or may be provided extensions to the standard curriculum. Curriculum for GATE students should emphasize critical and creative thinking skills.
A majority of the teachers in the Eureka Union School District have been trained to differentiate the needs of individual students, and many of our teachers hold a certificate in GATE instruction. This certificate represents 30 hours of professional training specific to the needs of our gifted learners.
