GATE Plan Flawed
Original post made by Peter on May 12, 2008
Lets see, if we cut even one administrative position, just think how the sites would have money to really run a GATE program. Pleasanton parents don't be fooled, we do not have a GATE program, we have a way of funneling money to administrative salaries. The board should NOT approve a GATE plan that provides money to administrative salaries, for that matter school site plans should not be approved that fund salaries of administrators. Start asking questions now, before the board approves the new GATE plan and school plans. School site councils do have a say so in spending, exercise your right. KEEP THE MONEY FOR THE KIDS AT THE SITES!!! The board meets on the 2nd (tomorrow night) and 4th Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. Come to the meeting and let your voices be heard! or email a board member today!

After two GATE kids and 12 years in PUSD I can say we DO NOT have a GATE program.
It's all about salary.

Ages ago I was in GATE when I went through Pleasanton's school system. I only remember attending one or two classes of extracurricular pre-algebra in elementary school (during recess). I didn't know anything else GATE did. Guess it is still like that?
