Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) Testing Information for 24-25 Year

CNUSD is in the process of identifying students for the Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) Program for the 2024-2025 school year. GATE Program services in CNUSD begin in third grade. This year we are testing all 2nd grade students. All families of second grade students who do NOT want their second-grader test for GATE can opt-out of testing. Click here for opt-out information for second grade.

Students in 3rd – 5th grade may be referred for GATE testing. It is highly recommended you have a conversation with your child’s teacher, prior to requesting GATE assessment. If you would like to have your 3rd – 5th grade child assessed for GATE, you MUST complete the registration using the link below no later than November 3, 2023. This assessment is conducted online, and your child will take this assessment on her or her district student device during a session that will be proctored by a teacher.

GATE Assessment Request (for 3rd-5th grade students)

The selection process for the Gifted and Talented Program includes a comprehensive look at each student’s abilities and the results of the NNAT3.  If your child qualifies for the Gifted and Talented Program, you will be notified of your options. Depending on the services chosen, your child may be required to change tracks or change schools to receive all services. GATE testing will be held at your child’s site during specific dates in November and December of 2023, which will be set by the school site. All testing will be concluded by December 8, 2023. Test results will be emailed late December, 2023 or early January, 2024.
