PPIE will also offer an Innovative Education Grant program to PUSD educators. The application for that program will be available in January 2017.


GATE Nominations

Nominations due December 2, 2016

Nominations for Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) are being accepted now and are due December 2, 2016.

The purpose of GATE testing is to identify and motivate highly able students to realize their full potential. The District works with school staffs to provide high quality differentiated opportunities for learning that meet students' particular abilities and talents and to focus on the areas of need.

Students from grade 3 to 7 in PUSD are offered the opportunity to be tested at least once for GATE identification. Students may be tested several times, as often as every other year.

Students in grades 4 to 7 must be nominated by a teacher, parent, or other school staff to be tested for GATE services.

  • Parents may nominate their child by submitting a completed Parent Nomination/Questionnaire/Permission for GATE to the Special Projects office.
  • Parents wishing to nominate their child are encouraged to talk with their child's teacher about the benefits and implication of GATE testing.
  • The Parent Nomination for GATE form can also be found on the district website. There, parents can read the instructions and download the District GATE Nomination Form.
  • Nominations are also available at each school site.

Students are not eligible to be nominated if they took the CogAT test last year.

Students will be tested during the school day at their own school. A letter notifying parents/guardians of the testing dates and other information will be sent home mid January. Testing occurs during the month of February and is administered at each school on different days during this period.

Blanket CogAT testing for all third grade students in the district will be administered in February. Parents of students in third grade will receive a Permission to Test letter in early January.
