Upper Grand District School Board & myBlueprint Pathway Planner

Board Meeting Highlights for February 2018
The February meeting of the Upper Grand District School Board
was held on February 27, 2018. The following provides highlights from the meeting.
New Version of myBlueprint Pathway Planner
UGDSB Student Success staff gave a presentation on the latest version of myBlueprint.
myBlueprint is a robust pathway planning tool for UGDSB students.
For the past few years, K-12 students in the UGDSB have been using the tool to reflect
on four inquiry questions: Who am I? What are my opportunities? Who do I want to
become? What is my plan for achieving my goals? Students can also access
information about various occupations, post-secondary destinations and employment
opportunities.
Students use myBlueprint to chart out their pathway, save their progress and make
informed decisions throughout their schooling. Everything is connected and
personalized, from course selections to goals they can set for themselves. myBlueprint
also has resources for navigating the working world, including resume and cover letter
writing tips, career information, and financial planning tools.
The newest version of myBlueprint features a modernized interface and mobile
responsiveness, so it works well on all devices. myBlueprint now offers accounts for
parents/guardians, so they can access important information they and their child may
need to make informed decisions about life after high school.
Students and parents also have access to myBlueprint’s comprehensive Guides, where
they can learn more about a range of topics related to College and University,
apprenticeship, finances, mental health and transitioning to life after high school, and more.

Recently, UGDSB staff worked with myBlueprint to create a comprehensive
Guide for Careers in Agriculture.
