Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) Testing Information, 2021-2022:

The Corona-Norco Unified School District is in the process of identifying students for the Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) Program for the 2022-2023 school year. GATE Program services in CNUSD begin in third grade.  This year we are testing all 2nd grade students.  All families of second grade students were emailed information and a form link to opt-out of testing if you do NOT want your second-grader tested for GATE. CLICK HERE to OPT-OUT  a 2nd grade student.

Students in 3rd – 5th grade may be referred for GATE testing.  It is highly recommended you have a conversation with your child’s teacher, prior to requesting GATE assessment.  If you would like to have your 3rd – 5th grade child assessed for GATE, you MUST complete the registration using the link below no later than October 29, 2021.  This assessment is conducted online, and your child will take this assessment on her or her district student device during a session that will be proctored by a teacher. CLICK HERE to register 3rd- 5th grade students

The selection process for the Gifted and Talented Program includes a comprehensive look at each student’s abilities and the results of the NNAT3.  If your child qualifies for the Gifted and Talented Program, you will be notified of your options.  Depending on the services chosen, your child may be required to change tracks or change schools to receive all services. GATE testing will be held at your child’s site during specific dates in November and December of 2021, which will be set by the school site.  All testing will be concluded by December 17, 2021.  Test results will be emailed late December, 2021 or early January, 2022

If you have additional, specific questions, please request assistance from your child’s teacher, GATE Coordinator at your school or the GATE office at (951) 736-5148.
