Elementary Enrolment Grows

- GECDSB hires more teachers -

Enrolment in Kindergarten – Grade 8 is up 626 students from this time last year in Greater Essex District School Board schools. The increase is being experienced throughout the district and not in one particular area or in a specific program. New registrations have also been received in all grade levels.

The total GECDSB elementary enrolment stands at 23,925.

The number of students is 659 more than projected last Spring, therefore more teachers and support staff are being hired to meet the demand. Seventy-four teachers from the Board's occasional teachers' list have been given contracts (66 Full Time Equivalent positions). A corresponding number of new teachers will be hired to fill the occasional teachers' roster.
