The Curriculum Team’s mission is to prepare all GCS students for the 21st century (impact) through the purposeful
a.) development of engaging, goal-oriented, student-centered, and collaborative learning environment(s)
b) use of technology to learn.

Gowanda Central School is a 1:1 district. Students in grades K-1 are assigned iPads, while students in grades 2-12 have Chromebooks. Students in grades 7-12 take home their devices for educational use. It is the goal of the district to use technology to increase engagement and enhance instruction. Teachers and students are encouraged to use their devices to collaborate and communicate not only with each other but to be global learners. 

Student device policies and user agreements are found within the GCS Handbooks.
