Gateway apparel will be sold online as a way to promote the district and collect revenue.

The school board voted 8-1 in favor of placing the apparel on fieldhouse.com. School director Scott Williams cast the dissenting vote.

The district will earn 20-percent commission on each item, which could include a number of things such as T-shirts, water bottles and key chains, district spokeswoman Cara Zanella said.

Apparel will include the name of the district or individual school and the Gateway crest.

Zanella said the Gateway “G” logo will not be used, to avoid a conflict with the fundraising efforts of athletic boosters. The district website includes a page that sells booster items, such as football-highlights DVDs.

“As long as it doesn't overlap ... I'm all for it,” said Bobbie Robak, vice president of the Gateway High School football boosters. “Any way we can get money coming in, I'm all for it.”

Instead of using the “G” logo, fieldhouse.com will use the district crest, the phrase “Gateway School District” and school colors on its merchandise.
