How can I get involved in Career & Technical Education?

Get involved with the Career and Technical Education Advisory Committee for Queen Creek High School. As part of Arizona's accountability system for Carl Perkins and State Block funding, CTE is required to do a self-evaluation annually. Community input and expertise will enable us to determine the strengths and weaknesses of our programs and build partnerships between business, industry, and education. If you are interested in being a part of our CTE Advisory Committee, please contact Dr. Tiffannie Sechrist, Director of CTE at (480) 987-5965.

How can I make a financial donation to benefit my student's CTE program?

Arizona law provides a tax credit for contribution made to public schools in Arizona to support extracurricular activities. You can help Queen Creek students and lower your tax bill with a contribution. The state tax credit is available to all taxpayers; you do not need to have a child enrolled in school to take advantage of this state tax credit.

To make a contribution, complete the form and return it with your payment to the QCHS school secretary, or mail it to QCUSD Business Office, Attn: Shari Zara 20740 S. Ellsworth Road, Queen Creek, Arizona 85242. Please see the Tax Credit page for the tax credit form and more information.
