Welcome to Gila Bend Unified School District

Gila Bend Unified School District No 24 is located in Central Arizona amidst the beautiful lands of Maricopa County. Gila Bend Unified School District No. 24 was founded in February 1887. The School District is named after the town of Gila Bend which is located on and named for the bend in the Gila River. The current Gila Bend School building was built in May of 1925 and took on its first student in September of 1925. Today Gila Bend Unified School District continues to serve over 450 students grades K-12.

Gila Bend is looking to fill coaching positions for the following sports:

 Junior High:  Girls Basketball, Boys Baseball, Girls Softball

 If you are interested in any of these positions send me a letter of interest via e-mail at JeffreyP@gbusd.org. The due date for letters of interest is October 14th at 5:00pm. Interviews will be completed by the end of October. Chosen candidates will have their name submitted to the Board in the November regular meeting for final approval. 

 Selected candidates must have a valid CPR/First Aid card, a valid Arizona fingerprint card, and have completed two online courses on the NHSF site; those are Coaching Fundamentals and the concussion awareness programs. You would need these by the first day of your sports practice season. I will help selected coaches find those courses.

Thank you for considering a position coaching our students
