Parent participation is essential to a quality program. Some ways you can become involved include the following:
Be familiar with your school's GATE program.
Be involved at your school site with after-school enrichment programs. Help to set up classes, field trips, competitions, and many different opportunities for students.
Work with teachers or other community members as resource people or mentors for GATE students who are working on special projects.
- Serve on the GATE Representatives Committee, where parents are able to set up networks between schools to share ideas and resources.
