Welcome to Pathways
What is Pathways?
Pathways was introduced by our Ministry of Education as one of the four pillars of the Student Success Initiative, along with Literacy, Numeracy and Community, Culture and Caring. The primary purpose of Pathways in the Halton District School Board is to develop learning opportunities and programs and to re-culture our education system to value all learners, all choices, and all destinations.
The goal of Pathways K-12 in the Halton District School Board is to provide learners with a variety of engaging learning opportunities (including Pathways Programs, contextualized learning experiences that incorporate real world situations, curriculum integration, and cross-curricular literacy and numeracy) and to facilitate the development of learners who know themselves (including the ability to identify strengths, accomplishments, and competencies) and are able to create a Pathways Plan to work towards their goals and future education and career opportunities.
The Halton District School Board now offers over 70 regional programs geared to better meet individual needs, helping more students succeed in their chosen pathway after high school, whether they are pursuing apprenticeship, college, community, university or the workplace.
Pathways has its very own website with information regarding programs and planning for parents and students. This website is a collaboration between the Halton District School Board and the Halton Catholic District School Board. Please click the image below to go to haltonpathways.ca .
Pathways Information Evenings
Annual Pathways planning information evenings allow parents and students to explore all of the opportunities that secondary schools have to offer in Halton.
We have found these nights very useful for all students grade 7 to 12 opening their eyes to the many excellent engaging programs regardless of their chosen post-secondary destination. These programs are designed to help set students on the road to success during and beyond secondary school.
Pathways information evenings take place in all areas of Halton. If you happen to miss the one in your area please feel free to join another one. There is no need to register for these evenings. Please feel free to drop in and bring your child along with you.
