Happy 50th Birthday Bucks IU

Intermediate Units were estab­lished in 1971 by the Pennsylvania General Assembly and their role has evolved and grown over these past 50 years. IUs serve as a crit­i­cal edu­ca­tion­al ser­vice agency pro­vid­ing cost-effective, management-efficient pro­grams to pub­lic and pri­vate K‑12 schools, school dis­tricts, and their com­mu­ni­ties. They also address both tra­di­tion­al and emerg­ing needs, serv­ing as an essen­tial link for learn­ing in Pennsylvania, and as a liai­son between local schools and the Pennsylvania Department of Education. Pennsylvania has 29 IUs cov­er­ing the entire state — Happy Birthday to Us All!
