What is a RESA?

Welcome to Berrien RESA

Vision: "Today's Purpose - Tomorrow's Promise. Berrien RESA"

Mission: "We support our school community with respect and compassion through quality programs, leadership and dedicated partnerships."

Berrien_Resa_VisionWe are an education service agency serving 26,000 students in Berrien County, Michigan. The schools we serve include 16 public school districts, 20 parochial schools, and four public school academies.

RESAs are service agencies that offer support services to school personnel that are best delivered regionally, as measured by cost, size and quality advantages. Berrien RESA is an autonomous, tax-supported public school district governed by Michigan general school laws.

Our Surroundings

Berrien RESA and its associated educational facilities are located just miles from one of our nation's most abundant resources of fresh water; Lake Michigan. We are also neighbors with the state of Indiana, which creates our southern border.

Working to Share Resources

Local school districts, educational organizations, local non-profit organizations and neighboring businesses are partnering with Berrien Regional Education Service Agency in a new way...by sharing resources that allow all of us to work more efficiently and effectively. Through such collaborations, dollars are saved, employees are working smarter and students/customers are reaping greater benefits. By incorporating the sharing of services in nearly every aspect of our organization, we too are being responsible stewards of tax payer dollars in that, we are maximizing how we spend revenue while at the same time providing premium services and support to Berrien County children.
