The Berks County Intermediate Unit (BCIU) employs more than 1,200 staff members and has operating budgets in excess of $165 million. It is governed by an 18-member board of directors composed of a representative from each of the public school districts of Berks County.
The BCIU has no administrative or supervisory functions in local school districts but exists to provide services and programs that might not be economical or practical for districts to provide themselves. As a growing educational service agency, the Berks County Intermediate Unit is called upon to address constantly increasing needs in areas such as special education and federal, state, and local initiatives. These challenges can best be met through the combined efforts of schools, government agencies, and community organizations. The BCIU is committed to becoming the first resource Berks County schools turn to for assistance, guidance, and support.
