Pleasanton Partnerships in Education (PPIE) is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for our Innovative Student Grant program. PPIE provides grants up to $500 for student-driven projects or special events that support student achievement. Projects should support the PUSD mission: "Our students will make a better world."
Applications are available on the PPIE website and should be submitted by December 1. Students will be notified of decisions in January.
To get a sense of past projects awarded grants, you will find previous award recipients on the PPIE website.
PPIE will also offer an Innovative Education Grant program to PUSD educators. The application for that program will be available in January 2017.
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.
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.
