CTE Department earns highest overall score in the District

In December 2020, our CTE Department had their TQI (Total Quality Indicators) evaluation and Desert Edge has the highest overall score (96.55%) IN THE DISTRICT!

Total Quality Indicators (TQI) is a tool to provide continuous program improvement. The TQI instrument includes six standards designed to validate a comprehensive CTE program.

The standards are embedded in a rubric aligned with the CTE Delivery Model, Arizona Department of Education program requirements, and relevant legislation.

The CTE Programs use the TQI information to improve the programs for College and Career Readiness for the students at Desert Edge.
