Office of the Superintendent

Superintendent's Welcome

Dear Community Members and Fellow Educators,

Welcome to the Marquette-Alger Regional Educational Service Agency, or MARESA. Our mission, as a regional educational service agency, is to provide educational excellence through advocacy, collaboration, and innovation to our constituent districts.

As the Superintendent of MARESA I feel fortunate and honored to be in the heart of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula serving our students, educators, and communities. The communities within the Marquette-Alger boundaries have entrusted us as educators with their most valued possession – their children. As educators and employees of MARESA, we take such trust seriously and are committed to providing the best education possible in order to prepare our students for their future. The quality of the educational institution is reflected by the dedication and efforts of our educators, our student achievement levels, career and technical education opportunities, our extra-curricular and athletic accomplishments, and the high quality support services we offer every day. 

The Marquette-Alger RESA strives to provide its constituent districts with the support services necessary to develop communities filled with learners prepared to be successful, productive, and responsible citizens as outlined in our vision statement. This endeavor is supported through the provision of high quality leadership and supports including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Early-On Programming
  • Special Education Services and Oversight
  • General Education Supports and Services
  • Career and Technical Education Supports and Services
  • School Business Services
  • Instructional Technology Support
  • Homeless Services and Supports
  • Legislative Advocacy
  • State and Federal Grant Supports

No matter what the needs are, we are here to serve and support the students and educators of Marquette and Alger counties.

Regardless of our titles at MARESA we all share the incredible responsibility for supporting the education of our youth. It is a responsibility none of us take lightly and one that pays great dividends for our respective community’s future. Our commitment to serving our constituent districts is steeped in tradition and is complemented by a community sentiment that supports public education and all those invested in the process.

Please take some time to review our website and let us know how we can serve you.

Sincerely,

Greg Nyen, EdD
