Bucks County Intermediate Unit

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 adults.  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:
