This is a two credit course where all Grade 12 students will present their capstone project to a variety of teachers in March. Students were paired with a teacher mentor in June. There will be 3 designated times during FLEX that students will get to meet and prepare with their mentor, to view this list please go to your myblueprint account "classes - capstone - activities". The project will include information on what students have learned through their time in high school, the skills they have developed, and their plans after graduation. The capstone is a representation of the student’s learning journey. The capstone presentation provides an opportunity for students to share and showcase their past, present and future journey. It is a chance for them to synthesize and celebrate their achievements and plans. Some of the kinds of questions you may be asked in the interview are in your my blueprint account in a class called Capstone. For more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org Career Education Department Head.
POST-SECONDARY INSTITUTION (PSI) SELECTION
The Ministry of Education sends transcript information to post-secondary institutions (PSIs) based on the requests of each student. This is done using the StudentTranscripts Service. This is done several times a year. First interim transcript information will be sent in early May, and final year-end transcript information distributed in late July.
Students can access the StudentTranscripts Service at:www.studenttranscripts.gov.bc.ca/. Students must create a Basic BCeID account to access their information. Students need only complete their PSI selections once in the current school year. Students may add to their selections at any time up through July 12, 2019. Students may make up to 25 selections free of charge within six months after completing their last course. After six months, students will be charged $10 per transcript, payable on the StudentTranscripts Service.
Please encourage your Grade 12 students to review the three how-to videos before they make their PSI selections for this school year. Videos include:
STUDENT TRANSCRIPTS SERVICE (STS)

Please note: UFV would ask that current high school students select the second transcript send option and maintain the default date setting as noted below. This will allow UFV to receive students’ grades throughout the year and ensure we receive their final high school grades and proof of graduation. Here is a photo of the screen for reference:
Student Transcripts Service – New XML Distribution Option
The Ministry of Education launched a new Distribution Option in the StudentTranscripts Service (STS) with participating post-secondary institutions in fall 2018. The new transcript exchange option will enable post-secondary institutions to receive official electronic secondary school transcripts at any time, with the student’s authorization. This will enable post-secondary institutions to receive student data more frequently and reduce or eliminate manual processes such as student self-reporting.
The five post-secondary institutions that have onboarded with the XML transcript distribution option:
UBC – University of British Columbia
UFV – University of the Fraser Valley
SFU – Simon Fraser University
TRU – Thompson Rivers University
VIU – Vancouver Island University
Additional institutions will be onboarding in September 2019.
