Join Us for the 2014 Festival of Families!

This fall, Berrien RESA will be hosting its second annual countywide event for families and children wishing to learn more about educational programs offered in their community. The event, the Berrien RESA Festival of Families, will be held on Saturday, September 6 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Berrien County Youth Fairgrounds in Berrien Springs. The Festival of Families will feature a resource expo where families can learn about a variety of community programs and services designed to help their children thrive. New this year, the event will also feature a college/transition recruitment fair featuring community colleges, universities, trade schools and volunteer organizations from Michigan and northern Indiana.

The event and all activities are free-of-charge. Pre-arranged shuttle service throughout Berrien County will also be available (at no cost to families). Please contact Karen Heath at (269) 471-7725 ext. 1147 to request transportation.

We support our school community with respect and compassion through quality programs, leadership and dedicated partnerships.


The decision to cancel school on inclement weather days involves many factors.  Our primary goal is the safe transportation of all students, parents, faculty and staff.  The Transportation Supervisor checks road conditions by 5:00 a.m. and notifies the Superintendent by 5:30 a.m.  Other considerations used in the decision to cancel school include temperature, wind chill factor, visibility, city and county road conditions, location of county snow plows in the area, the ability to clear school parking lots and driveways, weather forecasts and the status of neighboring school districts.  Because Berrien RESA transports students from all parts of the county and local districts have different starting and ending times, it is not possible at this time to implement a 2-hour delay plan.
