GATE in CA

*********** DRAFT *************

These are mostly for California residents.

Join this if your child becomes identified:

Educate yourself on the laws and policies. I am happy to decipher any jargon for you:
http://www.cde.ca.gov/sp/gt/


An AWESOME page. I believe it was designed by a GATE student:

Read this to get a sense if your child is gifted:

Don't start telling the teacher that your child is gifted. It really turns an educator off. Instead say things like: "Do you have work that is more challenging?" "He seems bored with this work" "How can I work with you to make sure my child's work isn't too easy?"

And it is very common for children who are bored and/or gifted to become discipline problems.
