At Salt Creek we are continuously working to provide a robust learning experience to meet the needs of our GATE students. Needs of GATE students are primarily addressed through differentiation in the general education classroom. Salt Creek does, however, offer a variety of optional enrichment opportunities after school that students may participate in.
Each fall, ALL 3rd grade students are tested for GATE identification using District wide criteria. At Salt Creek 3rd grade families are notified by March of the testing results. Although we offer optional enrichment opportunities for 4th-6th grade GATE students throughout the year, 3rd graders can participate starting the fourth quarter of their 3rd grade year. Please download the presentation from our GATE Parent Orientation to learn more about our program.
