In our latest podcast episode of Opportunity Thrives, we had a chance to chat with Leslie Lenhart, the Communications Director for Tucson Unified School District in Tucson, Arizona. Leslie shares the district’s strategies to be very intentional and responsive during the pandemic, including many practical tips that others can implement within their own districts.

Tucson Unified School District is the third largest school district in Arizona, serving more than 47,000 students in 89 schools and programs throughout Tucson, Arizona.
