On Thursday, April 9, 2020, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf, based on COVID-19 pandemic response efforts,  ordered all public schools and early childhood education programs to close through the end of the 2019-2020 academic school year.   

As a result, all Bucks County IU offices, programs, and services are closed through June 30, 2020. Families who receive services from the Bucks IU will continue to be provided a continuity of education through online or virtual platforms.

Responses to Right to Know requests will also be delayed until school offices open once again.

The Bucks IU provides expert consulting support and technology services – from simply providing information and support data to actual software, hardware, and networking – to educational institutions across the state. Our position as an educational service agency provides a level of knowledge and understanding of K-12 operations and requirements that outside organizations are unable to provide. The Bucks IU is integrally involved with our school districts, business offices, and individual schools on many levels and in such a way that it is incumbent upon us to ensure a superior level of service and quality.  

We are able to investigate, recommend, design, deploy, update, and help maintain systems to ensure optimal computing and digital media operations. Through our cooperative purchasing efforts, we provide our partners with aggressive and attractive pricing opportunities on items such as networking, software packages, and hardware.

Councils for Communications

Our technology team hosts and manages two councils; Bucks County Technology Council (BCTC) and the Technology Directors Advisory Council (TAC).  These groups meet regularly to discuss local, regional, and statewide issues related to technology and its input on education. Representatives from the county’s 13 school districts and three Career Technical Centers actively share resources and best practices, collaborate on projects, and work towards advancing technology services and capacity across the county.
