Have you heard about LAUSD’s Gifted and Talented (GATE) program? If you have questions about how your child can get designated as gifted and what it means exactly, you’ll want to join Parents Education League (PEL) for an informative presentation by Dr. Lucy Hunt and Erin Yoshida-Ehrmann, GATE District Coordinators.
This workshop will provide an overview for parents about the Los Angeles Unified School District gifted identification process, as well as District program options for gifted/talented, high ability, and potentially gifted learners.
Topics covered will include the screening and referral process for identification in seven categories:
- High Achievement
- Specific Academic Ability
- Intellectual Ability
- Creative Ability
- Leadership Ability
- Visual Arts
- Performing Arts
Even if they don’t score well on the test, there are other ways for them to get the designation as seen in the list above.
Once designated as GATE, options include the visual and performing arts conservatory on Saturdays at Cal State, Schools for Advanced Studies and check out this list of gifted/high ability magnets, which include several high schools.
The free workshop will be held Friday, March 3, 2017, from 10 am – 12 pm at:
West Hollywood City Council Chambers (1st floor)
625 North San Vicente Boulevard
City Council Chambers (1st floor)
West Hollywood, CA 90069
