1.0 Overview

     Cyber High is a comprehensive electronic high school that is available to any student with
Internet access. The Cyber High curriculum is aligned with the Content Standards and Frameworks
of California. All courses are currently accredited through the Fresno Unified School District of
which Roosevelt High School in Fresno, California, is the sponsoring entity. Many courses meet the
College Prep A-G requirements for the University of California system. The program began in
FSUSD as the Alternative Education Program (AEP, also known as Cyber High), which provided
individual learning (name-by-need) and a chance to narrow the achievement gap with at need
students. During summer 2007 (Extended School Year), the program expanded to Armijo HS,
Fairfield HS, and Rodriguez HS. For more on Cyber High go to:
          FSUSD’s Cyber High page
            http://ww4.fsusd.k12.ca.us/education/IndependentStudies&CyberHigh/CyberHigh-Index.html
           Cyber High Web site
            http://www.cyberhigh.org

Cyber High Program consists of:
   1. One lab per high school.
   2. Teacher monitors students working at their own pace on distance learning courses.
   3. Max 30 students per session. Two sessions a day. There is one to four courses in each
      session.
   4. 15-25 activities per unit.
   5. http://www.cyberhigh.org
   6. Cyber High Video

Read more about the program in the latest Cyber High newsletter (volume 8):
“Cyber High can meet your needs! It is owned by Fresno COE and consists of complete computer-
based high school courses that are WASC accredited and aligned to California standards. The
design of 5 separate units of credit within a semester course is ideal for students who are not with
you for a long period of time. If a student only finishes 1 unit and passes the unit test he/she earns 1
unit of credit that may be transferred to wherever the student goes. If a student takes only 1 or 2
units in a course you do not lose the other units, they are still available to use with other students.

Full time and part time students love Cyber High because it is self paced with media enhancements,
which provide high interest level. The reading level of our courses is 7th – 8th grade school
textbooks but because they are self-paced students reading at 5th – 6th grade level can successfully
complete the courses.

Because the courses are complete one teacher can facilitate a number of students working on
different Cyber High courses. There is no preparation time for the teacher so that person can put all
his/her time and energy in facilitating the learning process for the students. We also have 24-hour
curriculum support for the teacher and/or student.

The actual course work in Cyber High may be completed on the local computer without Internet
access. Students do need Internet access to take the unit tests for credit. We do have Internet links
for those students who would benefit from an enhanced program and the limited access work is

                          Cyber High, EdTech, FSUSD
embedded with interesting graphic clips and audio/visual clips. A student can hear excerpts from
Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech and with Internet access may see and hear a video
of the entire speech.

We are continually developing new courses and updating our software. Also, you automatically get
updates via the Internet and new discs when necessary, all at no additional cost to you. We have 8 -
5 technical support.”

2.0 Preparation – Information Technology

       Before Cyber High can be rolled out in the class, there is a lot of preparation that is involved.
Plan on beginning at least two months before roll out, especially if it is occurring at a new school
site. The key preparation regarding assistance from Information Technology, includes:
            Server
            Software installs
            Novell Logins (teacher & student)
            Change Password Icon
            GroupWise Web Email

2.1 Server
As of June 2007, there is one Cyber High server that serves five schools (Mary Bird, Independent
Study Program, Armijo HS, Fairfield HS, and Rodriguez HS). Stewart Savage (Technical Support
Manager) created and maintains this server. If you are adding students, make sure to ask him if it
can take the increase number of students. The IT system requirements for Cyber High can be found
at http://www.cyberhigh.org/system_requirements.htm

2.2 Software Installs
A Cyber High classroom needs the following software:
             Microsoft Office (or Starr Office)
             Cyber High 2 (latest version as of 6/20/07). As of 3/23/07, do not install Cyber High
                2 on Windows Vista computers, as we do not yet support it. Cyber High will inform
                you when Cyber High 2 is compatible with Vista.
             Net Support 8 (licensing at all AHS, FHS, and RHS).
Make sure to ask IT (Bob Thomas at elementary and middle schools and Troy Smith for high
school) at least two months prior to the start date to install the software. Licensing information is
kept with Educational Technology.

2.3 Novell Logins
Each teacher and student needs a Novell login in order to login to a computer at their school site.
The following is needed.

       1) Training Novell Logins (AHS only):
       Username (example): stu01 (see # on the computer)
       Password (example): contact Rick Stevens

       2) Training Teacher Cyber High 2 Login (Teacher)
       Username: testaccount
       Password: Ask Russ Chin or Rick Stevens
       •All lowercase! This will not let any student get credit for a course.

       3) Teacher Novell Login (teacher desktop, login only works at school site)
       Username: ____________________
9b171bfe-eb97-41de-a07c-388c3b59969e.doc                                        Page 7 of 36
                          Cyber High, EdTech, FSUSD
       Password: ____________________
       • A teacher must change your password when it asks you to (remember it!)

       4) Student Novell Login (student desktop)
       Username: SASI ID
       Password: SASI ID
        New Novell Login is needed for each student. If a student is from that school site and
           already has logged in, they should know their unique password. If a student had a Novell
           login but forgot, use change password.
        Rick Stevens or the Technology Strategy Coach needs to ask Tena Gore (Network
           Administrator) to add any new student to the system. This must happen after you receive
           a list of students that are enrolled.

       5) Change Password Icon
       Rick Stevens or the Technology Strategy Coach asks Tena Gore (Network admin) to install
       change password icon.

2.4 GroupWise Web Email (Teacher):
        Teacher at summer school will NOT be able to double-click on the GroupWise (GW)
         icon on a desktop to view your email. (ESY Summer School ONLY)
        Access GW Email Through Internet (ESY Summer School ONLY)
              o FSUSD Homepage – http://www.fsusd.k12.ca.us/home/index.jsp
              o On the right, under frequent links, click “GroupWise Web Access”
              o Login (if you have never done this, contact IT Help Desk, 399-5100).
        You MUST have a GW Web email account!
        If a teacher does not have a GW Web account, they need to contact IT help desk (399-
         5100).

5.4 Student Portfolio
This is REQUIRED. Each teacher needs to make sure that every student has a manila folder with
their name (last, first), SASI ID, & course, as well as each activity sheet (initialed) stapled to their
test score. Please sort the folders by their resident school.


5.5 Net Support
Net Support is a student monitoring system. A 1 ¼ to 1 ½ training is highly recommended.
Training should consist of . See Appendix C (iv) for the Net Support agenda & step-by-step guide,
and Appendix C (v) for the Net Support Scavenger Hunt. Patrick Nodine (TLC and teacher at Green
Valley) is the expert Net Support trainer in the district.


5.6 Have the Student Read the Curriculum and Complete the Activities
1. Courses are found on the “Courses” tab. At your first meeting with the student, review together a
Course Unit’s Standards and Objectives and the Scope and Sequence sections. Set weekly goals and
help the student determine how to best attain them.
2. Have the student read each curricular section and then complete the corresponding activity. After
the student completes each course unit activity, the student raises their hand, the teacher calls on
them to come to the teacher’s desk with their activity checklist. The teacher views and reviews the
students activity using Net Support.
4. Review the student’s activities using the guideline activity answers, which are available to
teachers and administrators. The activities are the primary assessment tool used to determine if the
student is prepared to take the final exam. Clicking on the “Courses” tab, selecting the desired
course, and clicking on one of the unit answer links can access the answers. Evaluate the student’s
answers and determine whether he or she should continue to the next lesson or redo the activity.
The teacher initials the activity on the students activity checklist if it is completed successfully.
5. Maintain a student portfolio of all the completed activities. Print the “Progress Report” page as a
checklist to check off when a student has completed each activity. The “Progress Report” page is
typically located within the first five pages of each unit. It can be accessed directly from Unit
Introduction section of the table of contents on the left side of the screen.
6. Have the student complete the approximately 15-25 activities per course unit.
7. Quizzes are continually being added to courses. They can be used as an additional assessment
tool to the unit activities. Quiz results can be assessed from the Report tab. Students must pass the
quizzes before moving on.
8. Once the student has completed all unit activities and any available quizzes to the teacher’s
satisfaction, the student can take the final exam.

5.7 Have the Student Take a Test
1. Verify the student has completed all of the course unit’s activities. If quizzes are available for the
course unit, then have the student complete all the quizzes.
2. The teacher should log in to Cyber High and click the “Approve Exam” tab. Prior to giving a
student permission to take an exam, the teacher may review a student’s quiz results by clicking the
“Quiz Performance” link and searching for the student’s name. Once reviewed, search for the
student who will be taking the exam. Select the Cyber High Exam button and then select the Course
and Unit number of the exam.

                          Cyber High, EdTech, FSUSD
3. Instruct the student to return to their computer and click the Course Unit Exam link displaying on
their “Exam” tab. Next, have them start the exam.
4. After completing the test, make sure that the student submits the test score result over the Internet.
A test score message will appear on both the student and teacher’s “Messages” tab. An email may
also be sent to the student’s personal email address if one was provided.
5. *** If a student takes two tests in a row, make sure a student logs out between test attempts. If this
is not done, an error currently exists where the student cannot get past the first question of the
second test. ***

5.8 Verify that Student’s Test(s) were received by the PASS Program
1. School Staff may verify that the California PASS Program received the test score result by
viewing a report.
2. Click the “Report” tab and select either the Student Grade Report or the Test Results Report
(school wide data).
3. Search for the school or student (depending on the report).
4. Check which student type to view (migrant or non-migrant).
5. Click “Show Report” and then “Print Report (opens a new window)”
6. If a test taken does not show on a report, then please contact Russ Chinn
at rchinn@fcoe.k12.ca.us .”

               o Student signs agreement everyday (laptops only)
               o Teacher Keeps a copy of this form everyday.

5.12 Completion of Units @ Cyber High
         Cyber High unit completion form (Excel document with student name, course, resident
school, and SASI ID) found in Appendix D helps to ensure that the students receive their units. It is
the teachers responsibility to make sure that the date the student completes each unit (1, 2, 3, 4, and
5) is added. It is recommended that this form is turned in bi-weekly (every two weeks) to the
Technology Coordinator (Rick Stevens) and the Educational Technology Secretary (Debra
Brodersen). On the last day of the semester (or summer school), each teacher needs to bring every
students manila folder to Educational Technology (2nd floor). Each folder should contain the
students name (last, first), SASI ID, & course, as well as each activity sheet (initialed) stapled to
their test score. Please sort the folders by their resident school (see attached list).
         After students complete and pass all 5 Cyber High tests (5 units), stay an extra day after the
5th test, write a Reflective Journal, staple each activity sheet to the corresponding test score (total of
5), and print a verification for passing each test, they can leave ESY summer school early.

The following must be completed BEFORE they leave early:
1) pass the 5th test.
2) each activity sheet must be stapled to the corresponding test score printout (e.g., unit 1 activity
sheet is stapled to unit 1 test score). There should be a total of 5 activity sheets stapled to each test
score. Obviously the student MUST pass each test. All of these documents must be put in the
students portfolio (manila folder).
3) Attend one day after passing the last test (the entire session).
4) on the last day, the student must write and turn in a Reflective Journal (1/2-1 page). Place a
hardcopy in the students portfolio. The student will print this document, show their teacher, and put
it into their portfolio (manila folder).
5) on the last day, the student must print a verification that they have completed all 5 units and
passed all 5 tests.


5.13 Reflective Journal
The day after a student completes his or her fifth unit and/or the last day, each student MUST
complete the Reflective Journal (Appendix E) using Microsoft Word (or STAR Office). The student
will print this document, show their teacher, and put it into their portfolio (manila folder).



5.14 FAQ’s:
Q 1) when do students take an official test? Is it after each unit, or at the end of all the units?
A 1) They take a test after each unit. In other words, after they complete all of the activities for a
unit (your initial needed next to each activity) and the quizzes for a unit. Then, you can find a
computer for them (away from everyone else) and approve their exam. Once you approve the exam,
they need to start the test in less than ten minutes. As you know, the student will need to print the
exam score and you will staple it to their activity for that unit. For a five-unit class, a student will
take 5 tests.

FAQ’s will be added to over time.



5.15 Transferring Students from School Site to School Site
Message from Russ Chin (Cyber High) on 6/22/07: “When I searched for the student using the Edit
Student Login screen, as expected, only one record existed for the student. I haven't personally done
many student transfers before but I did note one thing. It appears the programmers at least changed
the confirmation message after the transfer occurs. It now says,

"This student already exists and has been transferred to the new school. The student's account
information has remained unchanged."

Previously, an error message displayed stating the username was already in use by a student. If you
then proceeded to add the student, it would change the student's school but retain the original
username and password.

So in nutshell, they suppressed the username error from displaying and changed the confirmation
message to be more clear.”

6.0 Taking Tests

Each test costs the district money, so you need to make sure that the student is prepared.

6.1 APPROVING A TEST:
In order to approve a test for a student, a student must:
     complete ALL of the activities. The teacher must initial each activity.
     Students must pass each quiz.

All teachers should be able to approve an exam. Here are the steps to approve a test:

   1. You will see an Approve Exam tab on the left.
   2. Click the tab and search for a student such as "eric toliver". You will
      see a return link for "Eric Toliver".
   3. Click his name link and you will have the option to take a "PASS Workbook
      Exam" or "Cyber High Exam".
   4. Click "Cyber High Exam". ("PASS Workbook Exam" is for users of our
      workbook curriculum).
   5. Select a course a unit number for the student to take
   6. Click "Submit".
   7. The student can now log in and the course unit test link will display for
      them to click and start the test.



6.2 FAILING A TEST:
If a student does not pass a test, they need to complete ALL of the activities (second initial) and
quizzes again.



6.3 Completing a Course (5 units)

         Cyber High unit completion form (Excel document with student name, course, resident
school, and SASI ID) found in Appendix D helps to ensure that the students receive their units. It is
the teachers responsibility to make sure that the date the student completes each unit (1, 2, 3, 4, and
5) is added. It is recommended that this form is turned in bi-weekly (every two weeks) to the
Technology Coordinator (Rick Stevens) and the Educational Technology Secretary (Debra

7.0 Variable Credits & Transcripts


       From Regina Greene (Mary Bird Counselor) “As we get to our final days of school
(YIPPEE), I know that many of you are reviewing transcripts. I have received many visiting
students and calls about students who have partial credits on their transcripts. This is not an error.
Mary Bird works on a variable credit tracking system. This means students earn credits based on the
number of days they attend school. If a student enrolls in the middle of the semester it very unlikely
they will be eligible to earn 5 credits in each class.

        Students and parents are told this when they attend our mandatory orientation before students
are enrolled. I know and truly understand that this may be a pain to calculate credits but this method
is used encourage students to attend school daily since many of our students have attendance issues.

         Please be aware that Cyber high credits will also be added as variable credits. This program
is a self-paced program and there will be students who will not earn a full five credits in one subject.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me via email or call 421.4200
(Regina Greene, Counselor at Mary Bird).”

****************************
       From Liz Thomas on 6/1/07 “You mentioned variable credits is necessary for Cyber High
students. I will therefore be setting all summer high schools to variable credits in order for just these
sections to be so. Before printing report cards we will need to verify all student credit marking for
accuracy. Help Desk folks, please remind me of this and be aware of this issue prior to printing
summer report cards.

       FYI, when it is decided how and where to tag each type of student, you will want all your
Cyber high kids tagged so that you can access them easily and attendance accounting/funding can be
appropriately calculated.”

Appendix D – Cyber High – Unit Completion




         Cyber High unit completion form (Excel document with student name, course, resident
school, and SASI ID) helps ensure that the students receive their units. It is the teachers
responsibility to make sure that the date the student completes each unit (1, 2, 3, 4, and 5) is added.
It is recommended that this form is turned in bi-weekly (every two weeks) to the Technology
Coordinator (Rick Stevens) and the Educational Technology Secretary (Debra Brodersen). On the
last day of the semester (or summer school), each teacher needs to bring every students manila folder
to Educational Technology (2nd floor). Each folder should contain the students name (last, first),
SASI ID, & course, as well as each activity sheet (initialed) stapled to their test score. Please sort
the folders by their resident school (see attached list).
