Services and Description

  • Intermediate Units in Pennsylvania are part of the governance structure of public education in the Commonwealth. They are located in the middle between the state education agency and the local school districts. They were designed primarily to provide services to local school districts that can be operated more effectively and efficiently on a regional basis. Intermediate Units also have been given the responsibility of providing programs/services to students attending the nonpublic schools in their regional area.
  • ARIN IU28 offers approximately fifty-five programs and services to students, parents, teachers, school administrators, school directors, and others in the two-county region. Educational technology, professional/staff development, curriculum services, school-age programs, preschool education, adult education, cooperative projects, and statewide initiatives are categories of services provided to:
    • Students: direct classroom instruction, itinerant services, ARIN-operated classroom/services, and enrichment programs
    • Teachers: vast array of staff development opportunities, classroom resources, and professional and technological support
    • Administrators/directors: cooperative projects to save money, to eliminate duplication of support services, and to provide efficiency of operations
    • Community: outreach services to adult learners, partnerships, and local management with businesses and higher education institutions and agencies
