Pa cyber

The Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School is one the nation’s most experienced and successful online public schools. But it was facing challenges, including a leadership change and declining enrollment. PA Cyber needed to revitalize its brand and redefine itself in the marketplace. Most cyber schools focus all their marketing efforts on their online delivery model. We took a different approach. After a thorough discovery process, we developed a new student-centric brand that highlighted families and the love of learning. The new logo features a stylized owl – a symbol of knowledge and wisdom – and new messaging, including the tagline “The Learning Never Stops.” The new brand was applied to everything, including advertising, websites, social media, print collateral, signage, vehicles and giveaways. PA Cyber loved the logo so much, we decided to make it come alive by creating a school mascot. Archie (short for Archimedes) attends all school and enrollment events. The kids think he’s a real hoot.

The Challenge

PA Cyber is a pioneer in remote learning. And because they have been so far out front in the field, “we were able to find the potholes before people even knew there were potholes,” said Dean Phillips, Director of Technology at PA Cyber. “By the time the COVID-19 pandemic hit, we had already evolved into a bulletproof system.”

With approximately 15,000 devices spread across Pennsylvania, Phillips and his team needed a way to manage and secure the devices remotely. And because budgets are always tight, they also needed a way to recover devices in a timely manner and ensure students returned the school-owned equipment.

The Solution

PA Cyber first turned to the Absolute Control® solution to gain unbreakable visibility into device location and the ability to remotely freeze and wipe them if they weren’t returned. With the later addition of Absolute’s Application Persistence™ service, Phillips and his team can now also ensure an always-on, two-way connection to their IT management solution, Kaseya®, which they use to remotely push out security patches, new applications and scripts.

After years of experimenting with how best to manage and secure their devices, PA Cyber now has a fully automated remote help desk for their students, faculty, and staff. Application Persistence ensures this critical application is always working through an undeletable self-healing connection that has a comprehensive library of automated workflows.

The Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School, known simply as PA Cyber, is a public cyber charter school founded in Midland, Pennsylvania in 2000. The school secured a five-year renewal of its charter, from the Pennsylvania Department of Education, in July 2010.[1] After a yearlong review, the school was accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools in 2011.[2] According to the National Center for Education Statistics, in 2012-2013 school year, the Title 1 school reported an enrollment of 10,434 pupils, 1,326 of whom had IEPs. It reported a 50.75 student/teacher ratio.[3] In 2013, the school held three graduation ceremonies and, according to a report by the Pennsylvania Department of Education,[4] it graduated 1500 students, 87.7 percent of whom were bound for a post-secondary education.[citation needed]

Academic results[edit]

In 2009, 2010 and 2011, PA Cyber Charter School achieved AYP status.[5][6]


The school has been subject to regular criticism from the Pennsylvania School Board Association and Pennsylvania Association of School Business Officials over several issues, including funding and the school's fund balance reserves.[7] In 2010, the school reported an Unreserved - Undesignated Fund balance of $2,406,089 and a Reserved - Undesignated Fund balance of $11,415,257.[8] The undesignated funds are not committed to any planned project. Designated funds and any other funds, such as capital reserves, are allocated to specific projects. School districts are required by state law to keep 5 percent of their annual spending in the undesignated reserve funds to preserve bond ratings. According to the Pennsylvania Department of Education, from 2003 to 2010, as a whole, Pennsylvania school districts amassed nearly $3 billion in reserved funds.[9]

The school was subject to a grand jury investigation in 2007 regarding using funds improperly (for expenses not related to each individual student). The allegations were: double billing, excessive management fees, questionable payments to building contractors and misuse of tax dollars with regards to the building of a $23.5 million Performing Arts Center.[10][11][12] In 2013, Nick Trombetta was indicted by a federal grand jury for siphoning more than $8 million from the school through a network of profit and non-profit companies he controlled.[13] In July 2018, Trombetta was sentenced to 20 months in federal prison for tax fraud.[14]


The school was named "Top Places to Work" by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, in October 2011.[15]

2012 Pre-K–12 Educator Award from University of Pittsburgh School of Education [16]

In 2015, PA Cyber's Wexford 1 team attained Platinum tier in CyberPatriot VII, placing first in Pennsylvania and 54th in the nation.[17]

I was disgusted to look at it and I looked away. Having nothing to do, I began to examine the situation around. Surprisingly, there were quite a lot of people in the restaurant and the audience was motley.

In front of me every now and then there were images of beauties, moments of our intimacy. I never saw them again and did not hear the stamping of heels, although every evening, going to bed, I involuntarily waited for the continuation. Hello everybody. I'll tell you how we first decided and went for an erotic massage. Spouses 31 years old, not tall 1.

The bus, swaying and creaking with everything it could, shook along the bumpy road, between two forest areas. The solid green mass rushing outside the window made my head spin a little, and I switched to people, of whom there were quite a. Few on the bus. I was even a little surprised, but after looking at my watch and realizing that I had slept for about thirty minutes, I came to the conclusion.

That we made several more stops along the way.
