STMS earns mini grant from RESA
STMS RESA Grant 2022
L to r: Cari Crews, School Psychologist/PBIS District Coordinator; Lindsay Lee, of First Disrict RESA; Tori Flowers, PBIS Coach at STMS; and David Tucker, STMS Principal.

South Tattnall Middle School is the recipient of a $2,000 mini grant from First District Regional Educational Service Agency (RESA), which was presented by Lindsay Lee, School Climate Specialist with the Safe, Healthy, and Supportive Schools division of First District RESA. The grant is a 2022 Wellness Spaces mini grant.

"Most of my work is supporting schools systems who are implementing the Georgia Dept. of Education Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) model.  Tattnall County has been a true champion for students and PBIS, and I commend Cari Crews, your PBIS District Coordinator," Lee said.

First District RESA was awarded Mental Health Awareness Funding through the School Climate division, and much of this funding has been directly passed to the PBIS schools that RESA serves in the form of mini grants. A total of 16 schools are the recipients of these grants, also made possible by the generous donations of private business sponsors, such as Pope Construction and TQ Construction.
