2019 GATE Identification


The 2019-2020 school year GATE identification test will be administered at the District Office for students currently in 2nd – 7th  grade.  The students will take the Otis-Lennon School Ability Test, OLSAT, that tests abstract thinking and reasoning ability.  Students must attend one of the testing dates on the OLSAT Parent Permission Form in order to complete the testing by the district.  The Parent Permission Forms will be made available on November 1, 2018 on our district website @ www.rcsdk8.org under the “Parent” tab.  All forms must be returned to the District Office by January 11, 2019 if you would like your student tested. There are no exceptions as materials are ordered based on the number of returned forms. Make sure you check the RCSD website for more information regarding GATE services and testing.  Click on the Main Menu and then under Programs – Gifted and Talented Education.
