Creating Pathways to Success

What does this involve?

This involves Kindergarten to Grade 12 students involved in planning their education and career/life path to help them achieve their personal goals and become competent, successful and contributing members of society.

Pathways to Success

What does it look like in the schools?

Students from Kindergarten to Grade 6 will reflect on and capture evidence of their developing knowledge and skills in the four areas of learning in a portfolio called “All About Me”.
Students in Grades 7 to 12 will document evidence of their learning in an Individual Pathway Plan (IPP).
