What is the GATE District Advisory Council?

Each school has a parent representative who attends monthly meetings with the GATE District Advisory Council. The purpose of these meetings is to provide information about gifted students and the District's GATE program across the district, review general student progress, plan special events during the year, and make recommendations to enhance the program. Attending GATE-DAC meetings and sponsored activities provides you with additional understanding of the District's program and services available to your child. It also gives you the opportunity to meet other parents who have similar challenges and concerns. All GATE parents are asked, on a biannual basis, to complete a survey evaluating their child's experiences with the GATE program. This information is used as a basis for modifying the program for the following school year.
