Gifted & Talented Education (GATE)
SPARK Parents interested in having their child tested for gifted services should carefully read the 19-20 FAQs (español) which outlines important information about the testing process. If parents do elect to proceed with testing, a fully completed consent to test form should be submitted to Ms. Monica Slack’s mailbox in the front office by noon, Monday, September 30th for testing to take place this school year. The gifted department is not able to extend the deadline as the date is set by the district and testing plans are made utilizing information as of this cut-off date. Please view the OGATE testing information video below for more information. The GATE department is excited about the up-coming school year and looks forward to working with SPARK families this year.
