The Chief Technology Officer training program produces qualified California school district CTOs. The program raises the bar for technology leaders and creates a community of support through mentorship and collaboration. The program also seeks to inform Superintendents and District Leaders of the importance of a cabinet level CTO position. 

The program is managed and sponsored by CETPA and supported by the California Department of Education, the Fiscal Crisis and Management Assistance Team (FCMAT),and the California County Superintendents Educational Services Association (CCSESA).  The program is governed by a steering committee made up of technology leaders throughout California representing CETPA, CDE, FCMAT, CCSESA, as well as industry leaders, and graduates. This collaboration ensures a rigorous 
and relevant curriculum is consistently delivered. 

The 2019 application window is now closed.
