District Info

The Pima County Joint Technical Education District is a public high school district that provides tuition-free career and technical education to all sophomore, junior and senior level high school students in Pima County, Rio Rico, and San Manuel to give them a head start on college and careers. 

We serve students who are enrolled in  public, private, and charter schools; students who are home-schooled, as well as students who are in the process of earning a GED and who are under 22 years of age. 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. 

Students who enroll in Pima County JTED programs earn high school credit, and in some cases, may earn college credit, industry certifications, and/or a state license. We do not offer core curriculum classes, nor do we award high school diplomas, however our counselors will offer guidance to students to obtain their educational/career goals.

We deliver premier career and technical education in partnership with business, industry and community stakeholders.
