Do you know how to spell RESA?

What is RESA?
RESA is an acronym for Regional Educational Service Agency. RESAs (formally CESAs) have been in existence since 1966. There are 16 RESAs serving 180 school systems across the state of Georgia.

Purpose of RESA
The goal of each RESA is to help local school systems meet their education needs through the sharing of services across school system lines. Numerous educational services can be offered more effectively and efficiently by pooling resources. All RESAs are required to provide services in the seven areas of:

1) Research and Planning; 2) Staff Development; (3) Curriculum and Instruction; (4) Assessment and Evaluation; (5) Technology; (6) Health; (7) School Improvement

The Heart of Georgia RESA serves ten counties: Bleckley, Dodge, Pulaski, Wilcox, Telfair, Wheeler, Montgomery, Treutlen, Dublin City, and Laurens.
