Welcome to Berrien RESA
Vision: "Today's Purpose - Tomorrow's Promise. Berrien RESA"
"We support our school community with respect and compassion through
quality programs, leadership and dedicated partnerships."
We 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.
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.
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
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.
