More about the cause:
In an effort to better meet the needs of students who struggle in traditional high school settings we implemented a program, Big Picture Ukiah, which is radically different from models of education previously experienced by our administration, teachers, and students. In this model, students participate in internships in the community on Tuesdays and Thursdays and work in their classrooms on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. The goal of Big Picture Ukiah is that curriculum is “personalized to each student’s interests, talents, and needs” and involves working “with experts in their field of interest [a person at the internship site who works as the student’s mentor while participating in their internship], completing authentic projects and gaining experience and exposure to how their interests intersect with the real world”
