To request GATE testing for your child, complete a GATE Parent Questionnaire/Test Consent form online through the PUSD GATE webpage 

NOTE: Requests for GATE Testing will only be taken during the request submission window dates.

If your child was identified as GATE in another district, outside of PUSD, please contact your child’s teacher. Once 6 weeks of instruction has occurred in PUSD a paper questionnaire will be sent home. Once that is returned, the ABES GATE coordinator gathers the paperwork needed and sends it to the district. The district steering committee decides if the student qualifies for GATE in PUSD.

If you have questions, please contact Kerrie Shank at or Nancy Cline at
