The proposal is an integral component of the Internship project. The proposal, written by the student, should provide a detailed roadmap for the planned activities the student will participate in throughout the internship timeline. (Type of internship, schedule, activities of a ‘typical day’ etc.)
Each project proposal will include a schedule of the student’s day. At any time the school may visit or contact the student during the internship period. If the student does not adhere to the original project proposal/schedule, the student may be returned to school for completion of the semester including the completion of all final exams.
Contract signed by all parties involved in Internship.
Students will submit their completed application packet to Internship Coordinator/Ms. Deacon no later than deadline.
All students must work with an expert in the field of study at the internship site. The host is the off-site contact person responsible for overseeing the student throughout the internship program. Each day the student is to report to the internship host at the off campus site.
The mentor/advisor will be a liaison at BHS who assists students with the completion of the project. Students will check in regularly with his/her mentor/advisor to be sure deadlines and timelines are met.
Students will schedule a meeting with the internship advisor before the internship starts, and communicate with the advisor weekly as a check in.
At the midpoint and at the culmination of the project, students will be required to submit a Host Evaluation (see attached) and each week the student intern is required to submit a weekly progress report to his advisor at Burlington High School.
