Off Campus Courses – Technology Center of DuPage

Grade 11-12, Year-long Career and Technical Courses; 1.5 elective credits per semester

District 204 is a member of the DuPage Area Occupational Education System (DAOES). This membership allows us to access the services of the Technology Center of DuPage (TCD). TCD offers advanced career and technical education electives for district students serious about pursuing one of the available career pathways. The focus is on college and career readiness through applied academics, workplace skill development, and work-based learning experiences. This course of study requires a year-long commitment by the student. Transportation is provided by the district. Fees for programs may apply and are billed through the Technology Center of DuPage.

Participation in TCD courses is limited due to enrollment and financial factors. Not all students who request these classes will be admitted to the program. Since the district is making an additional financial expenditure, those students with the greatest likelihood of successfully completing the program will be selected. Applicants will be screened with regard to normal progress toward graduation, regular attendance, punctuality, self-discipline, demonstrated motivation, and teacher-counselor recommendations. Students should see their counselors for details.
