Course selection due tomorrow

The last lunch sessions are take place today, as the deadline for both online and printed sign off sheet are due tomorrow (Friday, February 23).

I’m aware that MyBlueprint has given errors for many people while trying to print. I am able to print sign off sheets from my account. If you’ve had trouble printing, students can see me during break or lunch to get sign off sheets printed.

Course selection: more helpful info

As we continue the course selection process, there are some reference documents from the TDSB that you might find helpful. Some of these were shared earlier with students during our MyBlueprint training sessions; others have just been made available.

  • SecondaryPlacemat_F – summary of key information for high school and course selection
  • Choices 2018-2019 insert – more detail about high school credits, post-secondary destinations, course types and pathways
  • Pathways Planning Guide – details about the course pathways for English, Math, Science, and English as a Second Language/English Language Learners (ESL/ELL)

Answers to frequent questions:

  • Students can take more than one Arts course in grade 9; York Mills CI is requiring students take at least one in order to fulfill the Arts requirement. BTT/TIJ (section D) are not mandatory.
  • If you are in grade 9 and have NOT taken an Arts course this year, you MUST take one during grade 10 (codes starting in “A”, e.g. Visual Arts, Music, Drama, Dance, etc).
  • In order to add in Learning Strategies (GLS/GLE), you need to leave an elective space open, then hand-write the request for GLS/GLE on the sign-off sheet. There will be a letter sent home tomorrow for students who are suggested to take GLS/GLE.

A reminder that course selection is due by February 23, and requires the SIGNED PAPER COPY as well as online submission via the MyBlueprint website.


MyBlueprint lunches: tomorrow to Feb. 22

Students can sign up to work with Ms. Wong on their course selection. She will work with students in one of our computer labs, and will be available for both lunch periods each day, from Feb. 14th to 22nd.

Note that the deadline for course submission is Feb. 23rd, so the labs will NOT be available that day, as the form requires parent/guardian sign-off.

Student sign up lists will be posted daily on the cafeteria doors.

Secondary optional attendance forms due!

Optional attendance forms for York Mills CI are due to St. Andrew’s JHS tomorrow! Please hand them into the Guidance box in the main office.

Optional attendance forms for OTHER SCHOOLS should also be handed in tomorrow – this allows for time to process and sign forms, as well as giving families adequate time to deliver the forms to other schools. Remember that most staff (including Ms. Wong) will be out of the building on Thursday for our second Activity Day, so that’s one less day.

Forms are due to the desired school by FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 2nd, 2018.
