About Cochise Technology District CTED
Cochise Technology District CTED (Career and Technical Education District) officially began on July 1, 2001, as an idea shared by seven satellite superintendents and governing boards from Benson, Bowie, St. David, San Simon, Tombstone, Valley Union, and Willcox. Douglas Unified School District joined July 1, 2004. Bisbee and Sierra Vista School Districts joined July 1, 2013. Patagonia Union High School District joined July 1, 2019. The eleven satellite high schools in the District are Benson, Bisbee, Bowie, Buena (Sierra Vista), Douglas, Patagonia, San Simon, St. David, Tombstone, Valley Union, and Willcox. The Cochise Technology District Governing Board and Administration have worked with the Governing Boards and Administrations in the eleven satellite high schools to develop and improve Career and Technical Education Programs for their students.
For the 2018-2019 school year, Cochise Technology District reported to the Arizona Department of Education over 2,900 students enrolled in satellite and central campus Career and Technical Education Programs. This enrollment generated $3,558,000 in revenues for the ten satellite high schools to improve and expand their Career and Technical Education Programs. (Patagonia will not generate funding until the 2019-2020 school year)
