GATE Assessment Consent Form 2019-20
In accordance with Board Policy, the Huntington Beach City School District continually seeks to develop the special abilities and talents of each pupil. In order to achieve this goal, instructional programs are designed to meet the special needs of students as appropriate. The GATE program is one such intervention. GATE services involve grouping students of similar ability in order to involve them in an educational experience that is challenging and appropriate to their needs and achievement levels.
Eligibility for GATE services is based on several measures, combined to provide a full profile of students who may most benefit from participation in an accelerated program that extends and enriches the core curriculum, while stimulating thinking skills at an advanced cognitive level. Students are allowed two opportunities in the Huntington Beach City School District between grades 1-7 to be assessed for the GATE program.
The measures and criteria established for GATE identification include the Otis Lennon School Ability Test, Eighth Edition (OLSAT 8), as the initial screening tool. Additional validating assessment data from your child's previous year end district and/or state assessments, and a Teacher Inventory of Gifted Characteristics are evaluated for students who meet the minimum OLSAT score requirement.
