Where Kids Come First (Cont.)

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.
