The Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) Program in Clovis Unified is designed to provide special enrichment for students who have demonstrated exceptional abilities and whose educational needs may not be fully met without modifications of the regular instructional program. Each of the District's schools plans and implements its own GATE program according to the needs of its students.
GATE is a program for students in 4th, 5th, and 6th grades.
Students are qualified for GATE based on their State Test scores. To qualify students need to score in the 95th Percentile (not percentage) in both the Language Arts and Math sections. Scores of all Clovis Unified Students (in each grade level) are compiled and compared in order to determine the 95th percentile scores.
A District test is given to students that were close to qualifying in both Language Arts and Math, and have a Teacher Recommendation. Students will need to score in the 98th Percentile on this test to qualify for GATE. The test is given only once per school year, usually in October or November.
2020-21 GATE Meetings will take place on Zoom:
January 27th February 3rd
* Depending on if there will be an Open House, the April dates may not be utilized
If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Henderson.
Trainings and practices are being held according to the guidance of the local public health department. Schedules and competitions have not yet been determined, and will depend on local health guidance. Updates will be posted as available.
