Gulf Coast Education Initiative Consortium (GCEIC) is a Regional Educational Service Agency for South MS established in 1997 to offer services for MS Gulf Coast school districts. We serve the member districts by influencing decision-makers, providing professional learning and technology opportunities, and collaborating with higher education, business and industry, and other groups and agencies to enhance the teaching and learning opportunities for our students by establishing education as the top priority for improving quality of life for the citizens of the member districts.

We are currently serving over 105,000 students and 5,000 educators. GCEIC believes enhancing the learning opportunities for students will improve student performance, which provides for a well-trained workforce, attracts new industry, retains existing industry, and benefits all sectors of the community.
