Q: Are the five RESAs able to support each project?
A: The ESEA Title II, Part B, MSP Request for Proposals requires as active partners Montana’s five Regional Education Service Areas (RESAs). As stated in goal 3 of the RFP, each project will "directly engage the five Regional Education Service Areas (RESAs) as active partners." The emphasis is placed on the MSP projects’ connections to the RESAs ensuring that the projects build statewide capacity to deliver professional development. Here is the link to the contact information and map for the Montana Regional Education Service Areas: http://www.opi.mt.gov/Programs/Index.html?gpm=1_12.
