The Iroquois School District is located in Erie County, Pennsylvania and is the immediate school district east of the City of Erie. Iroquois Junior/Senior High School is the only high school within the Iroquois School District. Iroquois Elementary School educates children from Pre-K through sixth grade.
The District administration offices reside on the southeast corner of the elementary school building on Tyndall Avenue. Although these offices are located on the IES campus and share one common wall with the school, a separate entrance and parking lot allow the District Office to exist as a separate entity for district-level and school board business. The offices of the superintendent, business manager, personnel department, business office, pupil services director and the Iroquois School Board’s boardroom can be found at this location (800 Tyndall Avenue).
The administration of the Iroquois School District is composed of a superintendent, business manager, assistant to the superintendent, director of pupil services, an elementary principal and assistant principal; a high school principal and assistant principal; and a school psychologist.
The school district is composed of two adjoining communities, both of which are suburban. Lawrence Park, one of the adjoining communities, is a first class township with a commission form of government and a population of approximately 4,310 citizens. Wesleyville, the second community composing Iroquois School District, is a borough with an elected mayor and borough council and a population of approximately 3,655 people. The population is predominately middle class with 16% of the residents being sixty-five years or older.
Even though geographically it is the second smallest school district that comprises a Pennsylvania educational system, the two communities that encompass the 2.3 square mile Iroquois School District share an unusually large church influence of all denominations. These churches all have ecumenical services and have always opened their doors for community activities. Both communities have many parks, ball fields and playgrounds with separate regulating recreation boards. Both communities have volunteer fire departments with ambulance services and separate police departments. Additionally, the Pennsylvania State Police, Troop E, and the State Police Crime Laboratory are located in Lawrence Park.
