Re: “Crunching University High Enrollment Numbers

If you take a look at the GATE program and those kids that are tested, offered self-contained class placement, and who actually partake, you will find certain populations don't take advantage of the offer. I know parents who had their kids tested at the strong suggestion of teachers and when a self-contained placement is offered,decline it because the school the child would have to transfer to was not close by (too far from home) or that siblings would be separated and to these parents these are big issues (even though free bussing is offered). This happens with the UHS testing of all TUSD 7th graders. There are too many who test in and will have the grades but parents don't want to deal with having a child in a school far away or "away from their friends/family". Sad, but happens. Maybe if more parents of these populations are made aware of the benefit of this special ed placement and are willing to support their child in it, there might be an increase of minority enrollment in UHS.
