GATE Identification Process
Within TVUSD, we seek to identify students who possess the talents and skills to be identified as GATE students. We begin this process in third grade. All third grade students are administered the Raven assessment as part of the initial qualification process. The qualification process includes: the Raven Assessment, parent and teacher questionnaires, as well as performance on the state academic assessment, CAASPP, to fully determine eligibility.
For information on the GATE Program within TVUSD please see the brochure below. It is important to note, there is no additional funding for GATE and no additional activities or programs are provided beyond differentiation in the classroom and pathways within the middle school and high school settings.
If a student participates in the GATE identification process in one school year and does not qualify, that student can participate in testing again the following year.
