Welcome to BCCTC

April 2, 2020 Message by the Educational Leaders of Beaver County:   The Beaver County School Districts and the Career and Technical Center continue to work together as we receive guidance from our state and federal leaders. Governor Wolf has announced that the shelter-at-home order is extended through April 30 for the Commonwealth and PA schools will remain closed indefinitely.  Therefore, all Beaver County school facilities are closed and events cancelled through, and including, Friday, May 1, 2020. We fully expect this to continue through May but we are awaiting further information from the Governor. All Beaver County schools will continue to provide continuity of education during the closure.  We appreciate your patience and support during this closure and we will continue to provide updates as we move forward together.

Hello BCCTC Parents!
Our Program Teachers are currently in the process of getting in touch with each of their students but they need your help.  If your student has not been in contact with their instructor, then we are asking you to please email their instructor your student’s contact information as we transition to BCCTC Online Learning. Their email addresses may be found by going to their program pages. You may also find our teachers by clicking HERE and if you should need to reach someone from our Support Staff, please click HERE. Please know that we are working diligently to offer your student much CTE theory, program instruction, and up-to-date instructional/industry resources online. Also, please check back to this site occasionally for updates. All the best to you and your families during this unprecedented time!

PLEASE NOTE: The Beaver County Career & Technology Center is closed by order of the Governor of Pennsylvania. Any Right to Know request will not be received until the current anticipated date of reopening at the earliest, May 4, 2020. Thank you!
