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.

Bridges Virtual Education Services

We proudly power Bridges Virtual to provide online educational services. The goal is to strengthen the existing academic programs of the school district by providing agile learning environments that promote individualized learning paths for students. Bridges Virtual is a unique online learning program in that students remain a pupil of their home district, receive a district diploma, have access to district support services, and retain the opportunity to participate in after-school activities and athletics.

Online Learning
With a variety of high-quality, K-12, online learning options, Bridges Virtual is available to school districts throughout Pennsylvania. The mission of our partnership with the program is to assist school districts with the implementation, or refinement, of their own virtual education programs. 

Bridges Virtual offers online courses through a variety of course providers and operates under an "à la carte" model of flexible options; students can take one course or a full schedule of courses. Bridges works with each enrolling district's guidance counselor or administrator to determine the best courses based on the student’s needs. All students receive support from course teachers, Bridges' Online Learning Mentor, and their home districts.
