GATE/Rapid Learner program provides funding for local educational
agencies to develop unique education opportunities for high-achieving
and underachieving pupils in California public elementary and secondary
schools who have been identified as gifted and talented. Special efforts
are made to ensure that the demographics of participating pupils accurately represents our district's demographics.
Rapid Learner/GATE program Nomination Packets for students in grades 3 through 7 are available to download below, or in the school
office. Parents interested in nominating their 3rd-7th grade child for GATE testing, must complete the Permission to Test Form and the Parent Nomination Form and give them, along with the entire nomination packet, to the student's classroom teacher for completion of the Teacher Nomination Form and VAPA Form. Because your child's teacher must submit completed packets to their school site
office by end of day, March 22, 2019, please let them know as soon as possible if you're intending to nominate your child for testing.
The CogAT test will be administered to nominated students to help
determine eligibility for participation in the Auburn Union School
District Rapid Learner/GATE Program. Testing will take place in April at your child's home
For more information about AUSD's Rapid Learner/GATE program, please see the Rapid Learner/GATE Handbook or consult your child's teacher or principal.
