Doug Deborde
Director of Boyd County Career and Technical Education Center

Hello and welcome to Boyd County Career and Technical Center,

We are a locally operated Career and Technical Center and serve Boyd Co High School Students. Located at 12300 Midland Trail Ashland, Ky., we offer Career Pathways and Programs aligned witch KDE. 

As director, I strive for employable certifications that students can obtain upon graduation that will lead them in a successful career transition.  Our staff seeks programs that reflect current community and industry needs as we address work force and essential skills for employers. We have active work-based learning opportunities through our student internships and offer cooperative education with local businesses.

Currently, we offer courses in Business, Information Technology, Allied Health, Pre-Nursing, Automotive Technology, Welding, Carpentry, Early Childhood Education, Agriculture and Animal Science. All of our programs have pathways that can lead to industry recognized certification.

As part of these programs, students are encouraged to participate in their respective student organizations such as FFA – Future Farmers of America, Skills USA, HOSA - Health Occupations Students of America, FCCLA - Family Career Community Leaders of America, and FBLA - Future Business Leaders of America. Students gain leadership skills while networking their trade through conferences and competitions.
