School district mulls over GATE program changes – Daily Republic

By Susan Winlow

Changes could be coming to the Gifted and Talented Education program – also known as GATE – which could see the reduction of a magnet site at the middle school level, but the increase in “cluster” sites at current schools within the Fairfield-Suisun School District.

School district officials said it’s a way to meet the needs of all GATE-identified students by supplying additional access and also enhancing the program. Not everyone agreed, however, with the possible shifts set on the proverbial table, and a recent parent poll indicated unhappiness with the current cluster programs.

The GATE program is currently a third- through eighth-grade program with the main magnet program at K.I. Jones for the elementary level and two main magnet programs at Grange and Green Valley middle schools.
