The Berks County Intermediate Unit (BCIU) provides programs and services to public school districts, nonpublic schools, and other human service organizations of Berks County, Pennsylvania. The BCIU also is a liaison agent between the schools and the Pennsylvania Department of Education. 

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. With more than 1,200 staff members, an operating budget in excess of $165 million, and governance from an 18-member board of directors composed of a representative from each of the public school districts of Berks County, the BCIU is committed to becoming the first resource Berks County schools turn to for assistance, guidance, and support.
