Board of Directors

Intermediate Unit Nine is a local educational agency controlled locally. The policy-making body is a board of education that consists of 14 members. Intermediate unit school directors must be on the board of school directors of one of the constituent districts. These 14 school districts determine the work of IU9 by approving expenditures for services.

Intermediate unit staff meets at least five times per year with the advisory council to develop and recommend services to school directors of districts and of IU9. The 14 district superintendents comprise the advisory council.
