We are excited to announce the new brand of our TUSD Gate Program: Genius Hour Passion Projects. Our GATE Program will be centered on the Genius Hour model in which Gate classes and/or students identify passion projects to develop expertise. In addition, our GATE team is collaborating on using the GATE icons for depth and complexity to increase Rigor, Relevance, and Relationship.
