IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING SUMMER 2020 GATE TESTING

Updated on May 28, 2020

In order to adhere to guidelines put in place by the local and state health and governing authorities, GATE testing has been temporarily placed on hold. We will not be administering the summer GATE test that would have been scheduled to take place in mid-June, 2020.

The GATE office will provide parents/guardians with an update once we are able to safely resume testing.

We thank you for your understanding and patience as we continue to do our best to serve our current and future GATE students during this extremely challenging time. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to the GATE office via email at GATE@ggusd.us.

Thank you,

Marie Kennedy - Supervisor, Gifted and Talented Education (GATE)
