  • TEC-Sponsored Online Courses
    In conjunction with member school districts, The Education Collaborative (TEC), is offering a variety of online enrichment courses during the 2010-2011 school year at a cost of $300. per course. Enrollment costs are the responsibility of the student.    

    Completing course requirements occurs outside of the school day and is not part of a studentís daily school schedule.  Students receive elective credit upon earning a passing grade.  Online TEC-sponsored courses do not fulfill DSHS graduation requirements and are not factored into a studentís GPA, unless the course is specifically pre-approved by the Headmaster.   

    To register for any of these online courses, please make an appointment to meet with Ms. Kinsella in the Guidance Office between Monday March 8th and Friday March 26th.    Tuition in the amount of $300 per course is due at the time of registration.  Checks can be made payable to the Dover Sherborn Regional School District.  Please note that the $300 registration fee is non-refundable unless TEC opts to cancel the course.
    For more information regarding this initiative please contact:
    TEC at 781 326 2473.
