Around the County & Beyond


Here's a quick look at some collaboration between Cochise County and Santa Cruz County!

Alicia Buckhanan visited Ray of Light Academy in Santa Cruz County. She met and talked with Danna Rivera, the program director at Ray of Light.

Ray of Light Academy is the school associated with the juvenile detention center in Santa Cruz county. They serve detained students ages 8-18. The facilities there are fantastic and provide great accommodations for the students.

Alicia works closely with Danna to ensure that Cochise County students who are in the juvenile courts are able to access a fair and equitable education, and that they have support in the county when they return and transition back into their home communities.

We would like to thank Mrs. Buckhanan, Mrs. Rivera, Superintendent Clay, and Superintendent Velasquez for all the work they do to help our children!
