Individual Pathway Planning

The guidance department supports students in their navigation through secondary school and into their future.  All DDSB schools are required to implement the Ontario government document "Creating Pathways to Success; An Education and Career/Life Planning Program for Ontario Schools."  As mandated, students are required to complete and review their IPP twice each year.

The program framework is a four-step inquiry process built on four questions linked to the four areas of learning in education and career/life planning -

Knowing Yourself

Exploring Opportunities

Making Decisions and Setting Goals

Achieving Goals and Making Transitions

The four questions in the frame work

    1. Who am I?
    2. What are my opportunities?
    3. Who do I want to become?
    4. What is my plan for achieving my goals?

During Semester 1 of each year, students in grades 9-12 will be provided with opportunities to explore their skills and interests, and research opportunities available to them post-secondary.
