Moving Students to Careers and College –

New Eligibility Requirements for 2016-2017
The Pima County JTED is a public high school district that offers premier, tuition-free Career and Technical Education programs to sophomores, juniors and seniors. We serve students from public, private, and charter schools, and students who are home-schooled. JTED also serves students who have not earned a diploma or GED and are under the age of 22. Students may attend JTED classes at one of our Central Campuses, located throughout Pima County, or at one of our satellite locations which are located at all public high schools in Pima County, Santa Cruz Valley, and in Mammoth San Manuel.

It is the intent of Pima County JTED @ Master Pieces to submit an application for FY2017 – 21st Century Community Learning Centers Cycle 13 funding. 21st Century Community Learning Centers help improve literacy, and provide services that foster parent and community support for student achievement.
