Parent / Teacher Resources

The District GATE office maintains a lending library on a full range of GATE topics geared toward parents, students, teachers and administrators. The resource library also has enrichment resources that can be used at home or in the classroom. If you are interested in borrowing books from the resource library, please call the district GATE office, 406-3252, to make an appointment to visit the library.

Most schools also have books and/or videos related to raising and educating gifted students. Parents may contact the school's GATE coordinator to see what resources are available.


Gifted and Talented Education

The purpose of the Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) program is to provide challenging curriculum and instruction for students who are capable of achieving at a level significantly beyond that of their chronological peers.

GATE funding is used to identify gifted and talented students, and to initiate and maintain services for them.
