The Northwest Regional Educational Service Alliance provides quality staff development and technical assistance for member public school systems in northwestern North Carolina. Inservice is conducted region-wide for all educators or within individual systems or schools. Regional workshops in the core curriculum areas of reading, writing, math, science and socia studies are offered, as are sessions in media, technology integration, learning styles, curriculum alignment and all aspects of education. Technical assistance and consultation are available to individuals, schools and LEAs by special request or appointment.

The mission of the Northwest RESA is to provide professional services, quality staff development, and support for our educational community in a proactive, efficient, and cost-effective manner in order to make a positive difference in student learning.     Member educators are encouraged to call the NWRESA office for more information on any aspect of services or to request assistance.
