They will have the opportunity to complete multiple self assessments, reflect on these interest inventories, create a personal portfolio, and learn about other features that are available to support future planning.

My Pathway Planner

 
Depending on their level of engagement with myPathwayPlanner last year, students will be working on different phases of the assigned IPP activities.  

Phase 1 is first activity for all students.  All student in Grade 9 will start at Phase 1.  If students have fully completed this assignment, they should proceed to Phase 2.  As students proceed, the expectation is they will have the opportunity to complete all four IPP phases by the end of their Grade 12 year.​

Students may not have time to complete all of these steps during the alotted IPP class time, however, students may access their pathway planner using myPathwayPlanner (myBlueprint) anytime, from any computer, using the myPathwayPlanner icon and their gapps login and password.​

The schedule showing when each homeroom class will be using school technology to access the IPP can be found here​​​​​.
