CTE programs[edit]

Ukiah High School is home to an outstanding collection of Career Technical Education Programs. The school's demographics make it important to provide as much education as possible to students wishing to enter the workforce directly after high school. CTE programs provide the experience and education to qualify for additional college level vocational courses. CTE is vital to the 60% of students who do not seek further education at a 4-year university level. Most schools in California are currently phasing out CTE programs due to the state switching funding mechanisms to a program called Local Control. This means moneys that were set aside specifically for CTE programs by the state are now going into the school district's general fund, allowing the school to spend the money as it sees fit. Most schools like neighboring Willits High School are phasing out CTE and using the money to solve their budget problems. Fortunately, Ukiah's local business owners, Superintendent Debra Kubin, and Ukiah High School Principal Gordon Oslund are strong supporters of CTE programs. Their CTE programs are not only staying, but are in some categories expanding to accommodate larger numbers of students. Ukiah high school offers the following CTE courses:

  • Auto Technology - Systems Diagnostics & Services I
  • Agriculture - Agricultural Science I, II & III, Ornamental Horticulture
  • Business - Financial Services
  • Child Development, Consumer Services - Life Management
  • Computer Science
