Educational Services

Welcome to the Gilroy Unified School District Educational Services webpage.

The overarching goal of Educational Services is to provide meaningful and lasting support for our Early Childhood programs, elementary schools, middle schools, alternative schools and comprehensive high schools. This support takes many forms, and it involves participants from within our district and from outside agencies when appropriate or required.

Educational Services is prepared to address the needs and requirements of schools through the various departments:

  1. After-School Programs
  2. Curriculum & Instruction
  3. Early Childhood Programs
  4. Migrant Education
  5. Specialized Programs
  6. Student Assessment and Program Evaluation
  7. Teacher Support – PAR
  8. Additional Educational Services

Please visit our individual department webpages for more information.

Educational Services believes that our work is to serve students and families, teachers and administrators and the entire GUSD community by improving learning conditions, expectations and opportunities for all. Educational Services strives to meet the challenge to move from Good to Great throughout the district office and schools.

This district has been moving from good to great steadily through its API and AYP growth. The district student population is also growing,and our demographics have been shifting. Throughout these transitions, Educational Services continues to keep its eyes on the prize – improved student achievement.
