The Ypsilanti Public School District is a public school district in Ypsilanti, Michigan. Its State of Michigan School District code is 81020.

As of the 2006-2007 school year, the district uses the four-tier system composed of Pre-K/K, 1-5, 6-8, and 9-12 Grade Levels that it has used since the 1993-1994 school year. Prior to that, the district used a system composed of Pre-K/K, 1-6, 7-9, and 10-12 Grade Levels since the transition of Perry to a Pre-K/K building.

On June 8, 2009, the YPS school board unanimously passed a resolution to "discuss options for the consideration and sharing of services" with the Lincoln School District, which had passed a similar resolution. Board members also left open the option of incorporating the Willow Run School District into the talks at a future date.[1]

On November 6, 2012 voters in both the Ypsilanti and Willow Run School Districts voted to consolidate the two districts. The two districts will become one unified district starting in the 2013-2014 school year. The name for the new district has yet to be determined, although a unified school board has been formed to oversee the transition.[2]
