Wraparound Services

Program Overview

Each RESA Wraparound Services Coordinator works to connect communities, schools, students, and families with the resources needed to achieve academic success in partnership with other RESA staff members. Specifically, they work to assist in identification of needs by facilitating/advising student focus groups, developing surveys and connecting to local, state, and national resources to address identified needs.

For districts/schools not on a federally identified list, the Wraparound Services Coordinators provide regional training on the wraparound process and
provide connections to resources.
