Grade 8 Transition to High School September 2021

Timelines for students in Grade 8 going to Grade 9 for September 2021:

·       Gr. 8 students will be working with their homeroom teachers on transition planning and using  My Pathway Planner in the next few weeks. Please connect with your child’s homeroom teacher should you have any questions. 

·       Grade 8 students will not be submitting registration forms for YRDSB secondary schools.  Starting on February 16th, 2021, submitted course selections will function as their registration. The deadline for course selections, completed through My Pathway Planner, is February 24, 2021 at 4pm by pressing ‘submit’. There will be no printing or signatures required by schools.

·        Any grade 8 students not continuing in YRDSB for grade 9 must use the “Not returning” option that will appear in the course selection tool when the course selection window opens on February 16th, 2021.

·       Families interested in a transfer to a different high school (Westmount is our feeder school) must request an electronic Transfer Request Form from the home school and submit it to their elementary home school. The elementary school tracks and forwards the transfer form via email to the home secondary school. Transfer Request Forms are due to Wilshire E.S. by February 4th, 2021.
