Executive summary

Schools provide opportunities and supports for all students to plan their individual pathways through school and make a successful transition to their initial postsecondary destination. This policy is designed to:

  • ensure that students develop the knowledge and skills they need to make informed education and career/life choices through the effective application of a four-step inquiry process
  • provide opportunities for learning both in and outside the classroom
  • engage parents and the broader community in the development, implementation and evaluation of the program

It supports policies outlined in section 2.4 of Ontario Schools and in elementary and secondary school curricula.
