Greater Essex County District School Board – MYCI in Mathematics
The GECDSB is proud to continue the Middle Years Collaborative Inquiry (MYCI) Project. This professional learning community is focused on improving student success in middle years math, specifically from grade 7 to 10. The 2015-16 school year will welcome fourteen new schools to the project, while welcoming back nine schools to continue their classroom inquiries. Our project is currently serving 62 grade 7 and 8 teachers, 10 secondary teachers, and 22 administrators. We look forward to a great year of learning with you all!
