Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) is an organization for furthering the education of particularly gifted students. The program goal of GATE is to provide high quality differentiated learning opportunities that meet the gifted and talented students' particular abilities and talents.
Parents of GATE students have the opportunity to participate in planning, implementation and evaluation of the program through the site and the District GATE Parent Advisory Committee (GAC). These meetings are held at the BUSD District Office, 1900 W Olive, Burbank CA - 3rd floor Board Room. Teachers and staff are always welcome to attend GATE PAC meetings. In addition, every other month parents are invited to a parent meeting, where Jennifer Almer leads discussions on topics related to parenting a GATE student.
