  • The G.A.T.E. program in Alta Loma School District is an in-class model in which differentiated instruction is provided by the student's regular classroom teacher(s).  Students are formally identified for the program beginning in the spring of third grade.  Students are clustered in grade level classrooms.  Junior High G.A.T.E. students are placed in accelerated classes and are monitored for grades and performance.  School sites also offer a variety of ancillary and extended learning opportunities that may include; special projects, gueest speakers, and field trips.  A Parent Orientation Night is provided at each site in early fall.  there are three district-wide G.A.T.E. activities: Family G.A.T.E. Day in the fall, our STEM Showcase in the winter and our Spelling Bee in the spring.  The district offers an annual parent University at which G.A.T.E. parents can attend sessions geared toward the needs of their students.  Staff training is provided annually through both in-district training and outside seminars.  Each site has a teacher who serves as G.A.T.E. Coordinator who, along with the site administrator, oversees the program.  A G.A.T.E. Advisory Committee composed of staff and parent representatives from each site meets four times a year.  A district wide GATEways newsletter is distributed once a trimester to parents, students, and staff containing articles from each school site.  Parents, students, and staff are surveyed annually to assess program effectiveness.
