    The following items must be completed if you wish to transfer your child to one of the full-time GATE programs: 

    1. The GATE Consent for Student Participation Form was included with the GATE eligibility notification you received and is required to participate in the GATE program. Please contact the GATE office at 661-631-4880 if you have any questions.
    2. Request for an Intradistrict Transfer for GATE online or by calling Student Services at 661-631-4729. Only parents/guardians who have received notification that their student is eligible to participate in the GATE program, and reside within the boundaries of BCSD, should complete this transfer request. If you have received a notification but live outside of the BCSD boundaries, please call the Student Services Department.
    3. Request for Enrollment Information: Once the transfer has been approved by Student Services, parents must register their child at the selected full-time GATE program school or fill out the online request for enrollment information through Student Services. The parent will then be contacted by Student Services to either stop by the District Office to pick up a packet or to request a packet be mailed to them.
