The Phoenix Elementary School District #1 (PESD) is a kindergarten through 8th grade school district in Phoenix, Arizona. It was established in 1871 as the first free public school district in Arizona.[1] The district boundaries cover an area from 16th Street on the east, south of Buckeye Road on the south, past 23rd Avenue on the west and Thomas Road on the north.[2] Student services include: speech and language therapy, social and psychological services, services for the hearing and visually impaired, gifted education, and special education. Each school has a nurse or nurse’s assistant on staff. Students of working parents are offered free before and after school care for their students.[3]

As of 2016 the superintendent is Mr. Larry Weeks[4]

Students feed into the Phoenix Union High School District[5].

In 2015 the district considered closing Shaw Elementary School due to a deficit of over $800,000.[6]
