2017 - 2018 Course Calendar

Welcome to the RBHS website for the 2017 - 2018 Course Calendar.  Contained within this site is all the information required for students to make their course selections for the 2017-2018 school year.

The course selection process takes place from November to February each year.  The course selection is a multi-step process and proceeds as follows:

November - Guidance meets with students to begin the process.  At that meeting students are asked to logon to myBlueprint.ca (the online tool used for course selection) and we give them a refresher on how to use the tool.  We review options and discuss how to decide what they should take.  Students do tentative course selection at this time.

December to February - students are encouraged to discuss their course selection with their parents, teachers, and friends and to research career paths that might interest them to understand what they will need to get there.  Students can make as many changes to their course selections on myBlueprint as they want.   We encourage parents to help their student as they plan their future.  Students should visit www.myblueprint.ca/halton   and start their research using High School Planner, Post-Secondary Planner, and Explore Occupations.

February - Guidance will meet with students again to have them input their final course selection.  Once they have done so, no further changes can be made on myBlueprint.  If a student wants to make a change after they input their final choices, they will need to make an appointment with Guidance.   

It is important that students make well planned, thought out, researched course selections in order for us to build the best timetable we can build.  Once our timetable is set, students have more difficulty in making changes because they are limited in the choices (by period) that are available.
Be sure to look through Course Descriptions and use the planning tools available.
