How Does It Work?
If a student has failed course work in a core day class, counselors may refer the student to Cyber High or Plato 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 or Plato Programs because they provide computerized instruction that contains links to various web pages to enhance learning. Cyber High and Plato are self motivated and self paced programs reducing anxiety for struggling students.
Students will be provided dinner after their Tennyson High classes in the YEP Office located at the entrance of the Counseling Office. Then they will report to their Cyber High or Plato classes promptly at 3:45. Class will end at 5:45. Classes run Monday through Friday. Cyber High is offered through the Fresno County Office of Education and the credits are being processed through the Fresno Unified School District. Plato is offered through Edmentum. Each semester course, when passed, gives the students up to a maximum of five (5) credits toward their graduation.
Once students complete their course work and pass the required tests, they are exited from Cyber High or Plato. The Cyber High or Plato Programs are not an alternative to core day curriculum and accountability to core day work. They are 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 or Plato course and need to take an additional course go to the end of the wait list.
IMPORTANT: Because Cyber High and Plato are popular choices for students, there is a waiting 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 at Hayward High for 10 days, bring an attendance printout, and another signed Counselor's Referral Form to Mr. Olmos to be put back on the waiting list.
