The Tucson Unified School District's newest member took her seat on the board this month. Leila Counts is an educator and TUSD parent. She received the most votes for one of two open seats last November. Counts shared how she plans to help the district overcome some of its biggest challenges and promote unity amongst her fellow board members.
"I would hope that moving forward we fix a lot of this dysfunction, work collaboratively for our students and that there really isn't a perception of an allegiance or board majority," Counts said.
