History

In August 1987, voters in the Kingfisher, Watonga, Lomega and Hitchcock school districts elected five board members to the newly formed Area Vocational School District No. 26. Their first official act was to call for a 5-mill election on November 3, 1987, to provide for operating expenses for the district. The 5-mill operational levy was approved by solid margins.

Kenneth Glazier began duties as Superintendent of the district on March 1, 1988.

In April 1988, a contest was held to name the vo-tech district. The winning name, Chisholm Trail Area Vocational-Technical Center, was submitted by Roger McAdams of Kingfisher.

Fifty acres of land were purchased for the construction of the center. HT&B Architect firm of Oklahoma City was hired to design the facility. Short-term adult classes began in Kingfisher and Watonga in September 1988.

Voters in the Watonga, Hitchcock, Lomega, and Kingfisher school districts went to the polls on September 27, 1988, and passed a $2.6 million bond issue to build and equip the center. Groundbreaking ceremonies were held on Friday, June 2, 1989. The building was completed and dedication ceremonies were held on Sunday, August 12, 1990. Classes in the new facility began that month for adult and high school students.

In 2001 the center changed its legal name to Chisholm Trail Technology Center.

Max Thomas was hired in July 2007 as the current Superintendent.

On April 1, 2014 the Dover Public Schools voted to annex to Chisholm Trail Technology Center to become the fourth school in the CTTC district.
