MBMS Gifted and Talented Education (GATE)

GATE Coordinator:  Mrs. Jackie Basney

2018-2019 GATE Testing
Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) involves services for students whose cognitive needs may require modified classroom curriculum and instruction to accommodate their learning differences and ensure their achievement. Parents may request GATE testing for students in grades 2-7.

The GATE steering committee results are in!  If you submitted a request from the steering committee, you should receive a letter in the mail soon regarding your student’s GATE status.  If your child qualified for GATE, please sign the enclosed consent form and send it to the office addressed to Mrs. Basney.  If your child did not qualify for GATE, they are automatically signed up for the GATE test on January 17th (unless they are a current 8th grader).
If you would like to have your student tested for GATE, please contact Mrs. Basney at jbasney@powayusd.com to start the process.


To request GATE testing for your child, complete a GATE Parent Questionnaire/Test Consent form online through the PUSD GATE webpage https://onlinereg.powayusd.com/GateSurvey/
NOTE: Requests for GATE Testing will only be taken during the
request submission window dates.
If you have questions, please contact your child’s school office.
