What is GATE?

The Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) program supports unique opportunities for high-achieving and underachieving pupils who are identified as gifted and talented. By state definition, gifted students are pupils who possess a capacity for excellence far beyond that of their chronological peers.  This capacity includes many and varied characteristics that require modifications of curriculum and instruction. These modifications form the basis of gifted and talented educational services. The Orland Unified School District offers services for students identified as gifted and talented in grades 4-12.

For more information about the GATE program or to request GATE testing for your child contact the Fairview GATE Coordinator, Elizabeth Vlach at (530)865-1235 or email at evlach@orlandusd.net.
