Cautionary Notice: As added and amended by SBX3 4 (Ch. 12, Third Extraordinary Session, Statutes of 2009), ABX4 2 (Ch. 2, Fourth Extraordinary Session, Statutes of 2009), and SB 70 (Ch. 7, Statutes of 2011), Education Code 42605 grants districts flexibility in "Tier 3" categorical programs. The Antelope Valley Union High School District has accepted this flexibility and thus is deemed in compliance with the statutory or regulatory program and funding requirements for these programs for the 2008-09 through 2014-15 fiscal years. As a result, the district may temporarily suspend certain provisions of the following policy or regulation that reflect these requirements. For further information, please contact the Superintendent or designee.

In order to meet the needs of students who are identified as having abilities or potential for high performance capability in one or more of the areas identified below, this district will provide, to the best of its ability, a gifted and talented student program.

Every effort will be made to identify students who exhibit gifted and/or talented ability regardless of socioeconomic condition, sex ethnic origin or cultural background.

Continuous parental involvement is essential and part of the GATE planning and evaluation.

Content of Programs

Programs for the gifted and talented students shall include elements identified in Education Code 52200(c), and in Code of Regulations, Title 5, Sections 3831 and 3840.

Implementation of Program

The Superintendent or designee is directed to develop regulations and procedures for implementation of the Gifted and Talented Pupil Program in this district according to the provisions of the Education Code and the Code of Regulations, Title 5, taking care that the provision of the program does not take away from the quality of the programs for individual students.

On approval of the regulations and procedures governing the program by the Board of Trustees, and approval of the program by the State Board of Education, the Superintendent or designee shall implement and maintain the program in this district so long as the evaluation of the program indicates that it is having a desirable effect on the students participating in it and that it is not harming the programs of other students, and so long as special funding for the program is available from the state.

The effectiveness of the GATE program will be evaluated in a manner that is consistent with state law and guidelines.
