Abstract: To develop a model for ICT adoption in selected secondary schools in Gasabo District. This study was guided by the following objectives: i) to assess the availability of ICT facilities in the selected secondary schools in Gasabo district; ii) to determine the performance expectancy of ICT adoption by teachers in selected secondary schools in Gasabo District; iii) to determine the effort expectancy of ICT adoption by teachers in selected secondary schools in Gasabo District, Rwanda; iv) to determine the social influence of ICT adoption by teachers in selected secondary schools in Gasabo district, Rwanda; and v) to determine the facilitating conditions of ICT adoption by teachers in selected secondary schools in Gasabo district, Rwanda. The target population of the study was 134 teachers and sample size was 100 respondents. The total number of returned questionnaires was 75. Data was analyzed using frequencies and percentages; mean and standard deviations. The study revealed that ICT availability was fairly satisfactory (average mean=2.97, Std=1.103). Furthermore, the study revealed that performance expectancy was satisfactory (average mean=3.92, Std=1.043). In addition, the study revealed that effort expectancy of ICT adoption was satisfactory (average mean=3.79, Std=0.952). Similarly, the study revealed that social influence of ICT adoption by teachers was satisfactory (average mean=3.89, Std=1.020). Lastly, the study revealed that facilitating conditions of ICT adoption by teachers was satisfactory (average mean=3.89, Std=1.020). The study concluded that ICT adoption by teachers can be possible when ICT facilities are available and when the teachers have performance expectancy, effort expectancy, social influence and facilitating conditions. The study made the following recommendations: The need for the government to provide schools with ICT facilities such as internet and laboratories; the need for the schools to encourage teacher training in the use of ICT, and the need for the school management to offer their support in the adoption of ICT in schools. The study contributed to new knowledge when it found that availability of ICT facilities, performance expectancy, effort expectancy, social influence and facilitating conditions are the prerequisite for adoption of ICT by teachers in a secondary school setting.
