    The Carbon Lehigh Intermediate Unit #21 (CLIU), located in Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, is an Educational Service Agency created by an Act of the General Assembly of Pennsylvania to help equalize educational opportunities for all students in the Commonwealth. 

    The CLIU serves as the coordinating agency that brings together diverse school districts, vocational schools, businesses, higher education and community groups. The CLIU uses a "regional team" approach and through cooperation and collaboration among school districts and community agencies, provides innovative, responsive, and cost-effective programs. It is the job of the Intermediate Unit to facilitate inter-district cooperation, provide educational and administrative services to schools, and function as a link between the Pennsylvania Department of Education and local school districts.
    CLIU provides a broad range of services to fourteen public school districts, non-public schools and two Career and Technical Institutes of the Carbon and Lehigh counties. Our services include: Curriculum and Instruction, Staff Development, Educational Technologies, Special Education Services, Non-Public School and Behavioral Health Services. Additionally, the CLIU also offers technology solutions through our Management Information Systems department as well as Business, Human Resources and Management services in community and educational settings.
    "CLIU is a service agency committed to Helping Children Learn."
