Tech Check

All new students are required to complete a process called Tech Check where students activate O’Dowd credentials, install school-related softwares, and complete a series of tasks that exercise commonly used features in our systems.

WHEN SHOULD I COMPLETE TECH CHECK?

All incoming students for Fall 2022 are required to complete Tech Check through one of the two options (A or B).

Option A: My child is taking Summer Academy HS Prep

Because Summer Academy HS Prep students will need sooner access to school systems and accounts, they must complete an online Tech Check before the first day of summer classes.

If you purchased a laptop through O’Dowd, we will reach out to you in late May regarding laptop pickups and Tech Checks. If you are bringing your own device, you can complete Tech Check as soon as you have received O’Dowd student login information, which is typically sent out in June.

Option B: My child is is not taking Summer Academy HS Prep

Students who are starting their O’Dowd journey in August should complete the virtual Tech Check through Schoology before Frosh Orientation in August.

If you purchased a laptop through O’Dowd, we will reach out to you in late May regarding laptop pickups and Tech Checks.If you are bringing your own device, you can complete Tech Check as soon as you have received O’Dowd student login information, which is typically sent out in June.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?

Due to COVID, Tech Check will be completed online. If you purchased a laptop through O’Dowd, we will reach out to you in late May regarding payment, laptop pickups, Tech Checks. If you are bringing your own device, virtual Tech Checks will be conducted through Schoology. Details and login information will be sent out in June.
