Our district is a member of the Southeast Kansas Education Service Center in Greenbush and a member of the A.N.W. Special Education Cooperative. We currently employ 39 full-time classified employees and 50 certified employees. Our district covers approximately 450 sq. miles and around 400 students are transported daily. We run eight regular bus routes, one special education route and five preschool routes daily.
Agriculture and agriculture related businesses are the primary drivers for the local economy. There is a golf course north of Erie and each community has some wonderful locally owned shops and restaurants to visit. Two larger cities bordering the district, Parsons and Chanute, offer additional shopping options. The district is served by two hospitals, Labette Health in Parsons and Neosho Memorial in Chanute.

Reagan Dillow, A Senior at Erie High School, was recently named a “Distinguished Finalist” in the Prudential Spirit of Community Awards. Reagan founded “Mitten Mania” in 2012 and has since collected over $5,000 worth of monetary and mitten donations to help elementary students keep warm in the winter. Reagan secured mitten donations by sending letters to local businesses, setting up donation boxes throughout town, and using the cash donations to purchase additional mittens. Reagan is the daughter of Jim and Julie Dillow of Chanute.
