IU5 is one of 29 Education Service Agencies in the state of Pennsylvania.
Education Service Agencies are in place under state statute and are given many different names in
other states across the nation. Education Service Agencies in PA are known as Intermediate Units.
Throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, IUs bring the best ideas in education to public,
nonpublic schools, students, and communities.
IUs offer schools and classrooms innovations,
cost-effective solutions, professional development, and technological expertise and guidance.
Together, the IU's diverse, community-driven initiatives delivered across the commonwealth as an
arm of the state department of education have a strong impact on learning.
