LDSB Expanded Opportunities
The Ministry of Education's Student Success Strategy helps students in Grades 7 to 12 customize their education to their individual strengths, goals and interests. Through our school programs, the Board is committed to equipping all students with the knowledge, skills, attitudes and experiences they need for successful outcomes that will ensure smooth transitions to the post-secondary destinations of their choice.
In Limestone, we value every program pathway that students follow to find meaningful careers and become valued members of our society. Our goal is to support students in high levels of achievement in programs that lead toward their life destinations.
A program pathway is a selection of credits and experiences a student may create or choose in secondary school in one of four possible post-secondary destinations:
There is value in all post-secondary destinations and all sectors of employment. A student's pathway is his or her educational program and reflects the goals that help motivate him or her to complete secondary school. Building a successful pathway through school requires planning, and is a cooperative effort involving students, parent/guardians, teachers and guidance counselors.
Factors that must be considered in planning include:
Most recent levels of achievement;
Preferred learning style;
Strengths, interests and abilities; and
Immediate educational needs.
