An excellent resource in trying to determine what types of occupations you might be interested in pursuing is the website http://www2.careercruising.com/default/cplogin/DSBN
To access this site you require a username and password. The username is the student's DSBN student number (found on the student card, report card, and timetable). Passwords are available from the school Guidance staff.
Career Cruising and the Course Planner have many tools to assist students and families with planning pathways and courses in high school. We encourage students to keep an up to date Portfolio in order to help them with programs options for life after high school.
The Course Planner tool is the mechanism we will be using for course selections. After February 19, 2016 we will not be accepting electronic course selections for the 2016-2017 year. Students will need to make an appointment with a guidance counsellor after that time.
There are a number of very useful tools:
Matchmaker - a series of questions that help you identify strengths, interests, and skills.
Careers - a tool that allows you to look up different careers and the education requirements needed to pursue that option.
Education - a tool that allows you to explore college, universities and apprenticeships.
If you are uncertain about how to use Career Cruising, come by and make an appointment with a Guidance Counsellor and we will be happy to walk you through it.
