The Erie City School District is the school district that serves Erie, Pennsylvania in the United States. It is a member of the Northwest Tri-County IU 5.

Serving the Erie School District are two high schools, three middle schools, and ten elementary schools[1]. On April 19, 2007, GE Transportation presented the district with a $15 million donation, which was reportedly the largest ever donation to education in Pennsylvania.

As of August, 2017, student enrollment for the district's 15 schools was 11,265[2].
