January 21/21

Every year around this time, the guidance department holds grade specific course selection assemblies to help you pick courses for the next academic year. While the pandemic and the lockdown have made it impossible to congregate in our school’s auditorium, we are still moving forward with our assemblies - albeit virtually.

We want to ensure that you get the assistance you need to choose courses appropriate to your interests and ones that point in the direction of your potential occupational goals. These virtual assemblies will provide you with important information to consider in choosing future courses as well procedural information on how to choose next year’s courses.

Please plan on attending the virtual assembly for your grade. The selections you make for next year will determine how many sections of each course we are able to run in 2021-2022, or whether courses will run at all! 

If you are currently in grade 12 but will have 27 or fewer credits by June 2021, consider joining the Grade 11 assembly for a refresher on the course selection process.

 

Accessing the Presentations Later

All assembly presentations will be posted on the Guidance Google Classrooms on January 29, 2021.

If you have not already signed into the Guidance Classrooms, you should do so now.

Important Dates and Deadlines

 

myBlueprint Opens Tuesday February 9th

You will be able to begin inputting your course selections into myBlueprint on February 9th when myBlueprint opens. Use the time prior to February 9th to research your options so that when you make your selections in myBlueprint they are accurate and reflect your needs and preferences for next year. 

Log into myblueprint: www.myblueprint.ca/tdsb  (the TDSB extension is important!)

Once you make your selections in myBlueprint,  guidance counsellors will not be able to `undo’ them in myblueprint this year. You will have to wait until the school’s master timetable is set (sometime in June) to see whether you are able to make changes to your original course selections. A lack of available space in courses means that changes are not always possible, so choose wisely and carefully!

 

myBlueprint Closes at 4 pm on Friday February 26th

After this date, you will be unable to make your course selections in myBlueprint. 

If you have not chosen your courses in myBlueprint before February 26th, your guidance counsellor will be left in the position of having to choose the courses you will be taking next year because the TDSB must know the total number of courses we need for 2021-2022.

We don’t necessarily know your interests and preferences, so it is best if you meet this important deadline. 

 

Quad 3 Guidance Counsellors

If you still require assistance following the course information sessions and the drop-in help session, please contact your guidance counsellor directly. We will be focusing on course selection issues in February. 

Please postpone other non-urgent issues until March to allow us to assist all students with the course selection process.
