  • Providing a Safe School Environment Remains a Priority
    Gaston County Schools is proud of its on-going partnership with the Gaston County Police Department, Gaston County Sheriff’s Office, and municipal law enforcement agencies, which are committed to doing everything possible to ensure that schools are secure and personnel are prepared should any type of emergency situation occur. Each school follows its comprehensive safety plan; as part of the plan, schools conduct random metal detection screenings as well as evacuation, lockdown, fire, and tornado/severe weather exercises. All schools are assigned a police resource officer, which provides a direct link between the school and law enforcement.
