Cyber High Program Overview
The Youth Enrichment Program (YEP), with a focus on reducing Hayward Unified School District’s drop-out rate and improving the chances of its high school students’ graduation, purchased the Cyber High Credit Recovery Program in the Fall of 2008.
Students will be provided dinner after their classes in the YEP Room and shortly after, report to Cyber HIgh at their school site. Cyber High is offered at Hayward High School, Mt. Eden High School and Tennyson High School during the 2016-2017 school year. Each semester course, when passed, gives the students up to a maximum of five (5) credits toward their graduation.
How Does It Work?
If a student has failed course work in a core day class, counselors may refer the student to Cyber High after-school classes to complete course work, test and recover credits for that subject. Students who are not successful during the regular school day may do well with the Cyber High
Program because Cyber High, although aligned with the Content Standards and Frameworks of California, provides computerized instruction that contains links to various web pages to enhance learning. Cyber High is a self motivated and self paced program reducing anxiety for struggling students.
Once students complete their course work and pass the required tests, they are exited from Cyber High. The Cyber High Program is not an alternative to core day curriculum and accountability to core day work. It is only as a last resort for students who need something more in order to graduate high school or gain A-G requirements at a C or better grade. Students who finish one Cyber High course and need to take an additional Cyber High course go to the end of the wait list.
IMPORTANT: Because Cyber High is a popular choice for students, there is a wait list. Therefore, students who are absent 3 times (2 tardies = 1 absence) will be dropped from the program. After being dropped from the program, it is the responsibility of the student to have perfect attendance for 10 days, bring an attendance printout, and another signed Counselor's Referral Form to the YEP Counselor at your school site to be put back on the wait list. Students are prioritized as follows:
1) Seniors needing credit recovery
2) Juniors needing credit recovery
3) Seniors needing grade enhancement
4) Juniors needing grade enhancement
5) Sophomores needing credit recovery
6) Freshmen needing credit recovery.
