The Bucks County Intermediate Unit (Bucks IU) was established in 1971 by the Pennsylvania General Assembly to operate as a regional educational service agency providing cost-effective, management-efficient programs to the public and private K‑12 schools, school districts, and community of Bucks County. Today, they continue to fulfill their mission of service by addressing 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.
Over the years, the BucksIU has continued to grow and expand their services to cover a wide array of programs designed to address the special needs of the county’s children between the ages of birth to 21. Bucks County is home to more than 96,000 public and private school students, in over 270 schools, served by more than 9,000 educators — and it is the role of the Bucks IU to work with and support everyone.
As educational innovators, they ensure the optimal growth of all learners by collaborating with the county’s school districts and community to initiate, design, and deliver exemplary leadership, teaching, and education. The Bucks IU provides:
- Student Services
- Professional Development
- Business and Operational Services
