Cyber High, Changing Lives One Future at a Time

Session 7: 1:00pm-2:00pm (Saturday March 02, 2024)



Cyber High, a non-profit entity owned and operated by the Fresno County Superintendent of Schools, creates pathways to success through standards-based, digital curriculum that fosters critical thinking, provides active and collaborative learning opportunities, and engages students in rigorous coursework. Presenting panel will facilitate discussion on all aspects of Cyber High from both a management perspective and an educator's successful experiences using Cyber High in the adult education high school classroom. 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. Cyber High courses are designed for students in grades 9-12; however, it is not uncommon for advanced students in middle school or for diploma-track adult education candidates to also use Cyber High.
