GATE Testing for 4th and 5th Grade - Coming Soon


GATE testing for 4th and 5th grade students will take place on-site on February 20, 2018.


We will be offering GATE testing to 4th and 5th grade students who:

1) Have never been GATE tested in TUSD

2) Have only taken the GATE test in TUSD once before


Students who have already been administered GATE testing through TUSD twice are not eligible for testing. If your child qualifies for 4-5th grade GATE testing and you would like your student to participate, please complete and return your signed permission slip to your student’s teacher as soon as possible, but no later than December 15, 2017.  Permission slips will be sent home with all 4-5th grade students, however students who are already identified GATE in TUSD do not need to retest.


Unlike the process for universal 3rd grade GATE testing, 4-5th grade GATE testing requires parents to submit a signed permission slip.  GATE Permission Slip Form


Please note that TUSD GATE testing for identification purposes occurs only in grades 3-5.
