Regional Education Service Agency 8 (RESA 8) operates under the policies and leadership of the West Virginia Board of Education and the RESA 8 Advisory Council to provide improved educational opportunities for the students of the West Virginia Schools for the Deaf and the Blind and the counties of Berkeley, Grant, Hampshire, Hardy, Jefferson, Mineral, Morgan, and Pendleton.

RESAs were created in 1972 by the West Virginia Legislature when they enacted Section 26, Article 2, Chapter 18 of the West Virginia Code.  The original intent of the formation of regional education service agencies was to provide high quality, cost effective, multicounty partnerships.   Still today, RESA provides services at a discounted cost for county agencies.
