Gate Parent Resources

Commnity Advisory Committee of Gifted and Talented Education (CAC-GATE) serves as an important vehicle for parent and community involvement in the educational program of gifted and advanced learners. The committee is comprised of parent representatives from each school within our district. Three committee meetings are held annually to promote open communication between district administrators, school staff, and parents. Meetings also provide parents with information and opportunities related to gifted education. If you are interested in volunteering as a parent representative, please speak with your school's GATE site teacher representative. Meetings are open to all IUSD community members.  

Below are Parent Resources regarding IUSD's Gifted and Advanced Learners programs.

PARENT MEETINGS

2020-2021 Parent Representative Meetings

GATE Site Parent Representative meetings are open to all IUSD parents. Meetings are held to promote open communication between district administrators, school staff, and parents. Each year our GATE Parent Site Representative Meetings also host a parent book club open to all interested community members. Book Club discussions will be held during the first part of the meeting. The last part of the meeting will be reserved for general parent site representative business and discussion. This year’s book club selection is The Path to Purpose- How Young People Find Their Calling in Life by William Damon.

GATE Site Parent Representative meetings/Book Club will be held virtually on the following dates. These meetings are intended for adult attendance only. If you are interested in our Book Club meetings, please complete this form.
