Teacher Support Center

Summer 2021

The Teacher Support Center is closed for the summer.

2021-2022 School Year

The Teacher Support Center will REOPEN with expanded hours for the startup of the SY 2021-2022. The hours will be:

  • August 16th -18th 10 AM-6 PM
  • August 24th-26th 10 AM-6 PM

FREE COLOR COPYING available by appointment August 16-26th ONLY.

The goal of this trial is to gauge if adding a color printer to the services offered by the TSC would be a viable permanent option to supplement color printing needs within schools.

  • During the trial phase, staff can use the color printer to print individual pages or class sets.
  • Staff should save files to a flash drive or bring hard copies to scan. (Electronic files will result in better print quality)
  • All printing must be educational materials

FREE classroom instructional materials, books, and more that will be available as supplies last.

All staff that are welcome, including all those who have previously registered. While you no longer need to make an appointment to work in the center, we will continue to use pick-A-time for use of the laminator and color printer, to ensure equitable access and to honor people’s time.

Regular hours will begin Wednesday, September 1:

  • Wednesdays and Thursdays, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
