Q: Someone called animal control on my dog saying he was barking and roaming out and not in my yard while I was at school

It would be impossible for my dog to lift up the handle of the gate then pull out the door, and come back to lift the handle again in order to lock the gate door

How to respond depends on what happened after animal control was called. If you received a citation, you may be able to fight it. If the allegation wasn't true and animal control didn't find anything wrong, then there may not be any further action needed.
