GATE Testing: permission slips are due September 27th

BUSD will be conducting assessments of students to determine GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) eligibility. In order for a student to qualify for GATE they must take the OLSAT, which measures the cognitive skills that relate to a student’s ability to learn and succeed in school and examines both verbal and nonverbal abilities. Students in third grade and up are eligible to take the test.  Testing will take place at Valley View during the school day on October 22nd. If you would like your 3rd-8th grade student to take the test, please read this letter and return the enclosed permission slip to the office by September 27th.
