BRIE'S PRIORITIES FOR TUCSON UNIFIED
TUSD STAFF SHOULD BE RESPECTED AND SUPPORTED
Employees should be protected against retaliation when filing complaints and should be provided with the necessary tools to get their job done. TUSD staff should also receive salary and wage increases with the cost of living and when there are minimum wage adjustments, veteran employees should have their wages matched.
IMPROVE LITERACY BY REINVESTING IN TUSD LIBRARIES
Student literacy rates in TUSD dropped when the district defunded their library programs. TUSD must reinvest in their libraries and staff them with certified librarians and media specialists. Up-to-date libraries and knowledgeable staff help teacher's supplement their curriculum and are a necessary resource for students in every grade level.
TRANSPARENCY & ACCOUNTABILITY
Establish better working relationships with staff, students and the community to ensure that TUSD will be held accountable for decisions made that impact student learning, the workforce and how public dollars are spent
