I'm seeing some info on The SFK Files about middle schools, but I haven't found anything on how the new middle school assignments will (or will not) care for elementary school students who have been GATE-designated. The maps show feeder schools by geography, but what happens when a GATE-designated student's elementary school is supposed to feed into a school with no GATE program (e.g., James Lick)? Will GATE-designated students still be assigned to James Lick (as an example) or will they have the option to go to a different school like Aptos or AP Giannini instead? I'd be interested to know what people are hearing about this topic. Thanks!
