About S-RESA

Southern-Regional Educational Service Agency (S-RESA) and the University of Southern MS Regional Service Center are located in the Owings McQuagge Hall on the campus of the University of Southern MS. S-RESA offers support and services to member and area school districts.

S-RESA recognizes that our ultimate purpose is to improve the educational opportunities of the school children of MS. We attempt to accomplish this by making connections between and among educators, school districts, schools, The University of Southern MS, junior and community colleges, the MS Department of Education, professional organizations, and other regional educational service agencies. Through participation in the legislative activities of the Association of Educational Service Agencies, S-RESA is an advocate for education at the national level.
