Hello West Shore,

I am honored to welcome each and every one of you to the West Shore Career-Technical District. My name is Yakoob Badat, and as the Coordinator for West Shore, I am thrilled to have you join one of our exceptional programs.

At West Shore, we take great pride in offering comprehensive career training opportunities to our students. Our carefully designed career technical programs are specifically tailored to equip students with the knowledge, skills, and hands-on experience required to thrive in today's competitive job market. We go beyond just imparting job skills, as our students also have the opportunity to earn industry credentials and college credits, providing them with a head start in their educational journey.

In addition to our state-of-the-art facilities and resources, we provide invaluable opportunities for industry exposure and work experiences. Through strategic partnerships with local businesses and organizations, our students gain real-world experience, develop professional networks, and enhance their technical and employability skills through Work-Based Learning opportunities.

To our juniors, their parents and guardians, I encourage you to embrace the next two years as a time of growth and challenge. Take this opportunity to push yourselves and strive for excellence. Remember, discipline and consistent effort each day will yield remarkable results.

To our seniors, their parents and guardians, I understand that the next chapter of your student's academic or work journey is rapidly approaching. I urge you to support and guide them during this crucial time of transition, allowing them to spread their wings and reach new heights.

At West Shore, we are committed to your success, and we firmly believe that partnerships play a vital role in our student's achievements. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like to arrange a meeting or if you have any questions. 


Warm regards,


Dr. Yakoob Badat

West Shore Career-Technical District Coordinator
