K-12 Education

Through OARnet resources, OME-RESA keeps Appalachian districts connected

The Ohio Mid-Eastern Regional Education Service Agency, better known as OME-RESA, serves districts in Appalachian Ohio, providing high quality, cost-effective technology and cooperative purchasing services. OME-RESA originally connected to the OARnet backbone on a 1-Gigabit-per-second circuit around 2006 after the completion of the Ohio K-12 Network. Since that time, K-12 content has experienced explosive growth brought on by distance learning and virtual, rich media content.
