Technology Center of DuPage (TCD)

  • As the 2019-2020 school year comes to a close, please reference the below information sent from TCD Principal, Dr. Jason Hlavacs:

    • Attached to this message, you will find a schedule for curbside pick-up that will begin on Monday, May 11.  All belongings that remained is student’s lockers have been bagged up for curbside pick-up.  Please come in during your scheduled time if you wish to collect your belongings.  Cosmetology Phase 1 students will have a different schedule that will be shared next week to come in and collect their belongings. 
    • Today is the last day that teachers will be posting any new work for students to complete for the year.  The only exception to this will be students that are still completing work towards certification.  Students need to complete all work to improve their high school grade prior to their last day for their home school.  TCD Teachers will still be available to assist students with assignments through May 21, 2020.    
    • TCD will be running cosmetology summer school online for the months of June and July.  More details will be sent to all cosmetology students next week. 
    • Any TCD student that was not keeping up with work and maintaining a C or better for their dual credit course(s) was withdrew today.  This does not pertain to the high school grade, only for the requirements to receive dual credit.
    • In some of our programs, students still have some requirements for certification that need to be completed over the summer.  The program instructor will be reaching out to the students that need to still complete certification requirements regarding how that can be finished once our Region of the State moves to Phase 3 according to the Governor’s Plan. 

    Grade update for sending schools(this was not sent to parents & students)

    TCD will be sending out our grades to you in our normal A, B, C, D, F format.  We understand some districts have modified their grading policies. Since you manually enter TCD grades you can adapt those grades to fit your policy.  The grades sent to you will have stayed the same or have improved since March 13th.  There may be grades of D and F sent out to schools. That will mean the student had that grade prior to the remote learning period and was unable to pull it up. 


    Please enter TCD at the south entrance and follow the signs to the curbside pick-up location.  We ask that everyone please stay in their car until a staff member comes out to ask you your name.
