My Pathway Planner is an interactive Education and Career/Life Planning Tool. It supports students in exploring career options, managing online course option selection for secondary school, developing interactive portfolios of learning and planning for their initial pathway destination.
Grades 7-12+ students can log into My Pathway Planner on the YRDSB public site or on their home school webpage. On the log-in page, students will select the ‘EDU’ Domain and enter their YRDSB Student Number and Password. After successfully logging in they will be redirected to the Career/Life Planning tool.
All YRDSB students will use My Pathway Planner as their Individual Pathways Plan (IPP) portfolio to support their Education and Career/Life Planning. Students from Grades 8 through 12+ will also perform their secondary school course selections through the High School tab on the My Pathway Planner site.
