Technology Department

Gaston School District is very proud of its Technology Program. We strive to use technology appropriately in all classes to enhance the learning process for all students. Gaston teachers have participated in Intel's Teach to the Future program and we conduct in-house training to enhance technology skills.

Students have the opportunity to work with the Technology Coordinator maintaining, repairing, and upgrading the computers and network at Gaston School District. This provides a hands on learning environment for the students in the Technology TA program. This is a letter graded program that provides students the opportunity to learn while doing.

Gaston maintains an extensive website designed to enable students and parents to access school information from their homes. We have an automated library system allowing students to search for library material from any computer workstation. There are four computer labs available for classes, library computer stations, and numerous computers in classrooms all equipped with the Internet.

Donation Information:

Please donate your used cell phones, inkjet cartridges, and laser toner cartridges to the school. Gaston participates in a recycling program that allows us to earn software and hardware in exchange for used phones and cartridges. Drop these items off in the Elementary or High School office.

We would be very grateful for donations of any usable computers or peripherals - no junk please - we have enough.

Thank You,
Mr. Catino
