There are three ways to qualify for GATE in Jefferson Elementary School District:  

    Earn a qualifying score on the Otis-Lennon School Ability Test (OLSAT), meet the district CAASPP Score criteria, or through the teacher

     recommendation/portfolio process.  Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) testing is open to second through eighth graders who have not taken the 

    OLSAT 8 in the past three years. 

    Parents are responsible for student transportation for testing after school. Parents can contact the office and ask for an application or they can apply online at:  https://www.jeffersonschooldistrict.com/Page/53
