    18. GATE Identification Students are considered for GATE identification based on the following criteria: • 1) Superior intellectual ability - students are recommended for consideration by the GATE identification team if they receive an ability score at or above the 8th stanine. Students who score in the 9th stanine and at the 97th percentile are automatically eligible for GATE identification. • 2) Academic achievement as measured by the California Standards Test (CST), writing samples, classroom based measurement, report cards, and teacher or parent recommendation. • 3) Alternative areas of exceptional ability in fine or performing arts, leadership aptitude, creativity, or social/emotional areas. Students are also given points if they demonstrative “at risk” factors such as being a second language learner or having a disability, but demonstrate a high ability score.

    19. GATE Accountability • GATE Plan submitted to Board of Education and State every 1,2, or 3 years (OUSD has had a 3 year cycle for past 5 years due to quality of plan) • GATE Advisory Council
