An Educational Service Agency

An Educational Service Agency

Established in 1971 by the Pennsylvania General Assembly, the Bucks County Intermediate Unit operates as a regional educational service agency to provide cost-effective, management-efficient programs to public and private K-12 schools, school districts, and the community of Bucks County. Today, we continue to fulfill our 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.

Our Mission: As educational innovators, we ensure optimal growth of all learners by collaborating with our school districts and community to initiate, design, and deliver exemplary leadership, teaching and learning.

Over the years, we have continued to grow and expand our 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.

Comprehensive Plan

The PA Department of Education (PDE) requires all Intermediate Units to develop, implement and monitor a comprehensive plan. The Bucks County Intermediate Unit #22, is required to submit this Board-approved three-year Comprehensive Plan by November 30, 2018.  Prior to the approval by the Bucks County Intermediate Unit Board of School Directors, PDE requires that the Comprehensive Plan be placed on public review for 28 days.
