Moving Students to Careers and College –

The Pima County JTED is a public high school district that offers premier, tuition-free Career and Technical Education programs to sophomore, junior and senior level students, as well as students who are under 22 years of age. We serve students from public, private, and charter schools, students who are home-schooled, as well as students who either have, or who are in the process of earning a GED. 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 FY2016 – 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.
