The Tooele County Board of Education is proposing to increase the voted local levy an additional .001 per dollar of the taxable value of the taxable property within the District. In 1998, the public voted in favor of allowing the District to levy a voted local levy of .0006 where it has remained since. If the proposed increase of .001 passes by the majority of voters this November it would allow the District to levy up to .0016 in the voted local levy.
Tooele County School District students and families gathered together at Tooele Junior High August 5th for the eighth annual Back-To-School Closet. Students received new clothing, shoes and backpacks to prepare for the new school year. More than 1,200 backpacks were handed out this year. Multiple families also received eye exams and glasses through the Mobile Eye Care 4 Kids, a nonprofit organization that brings eye care services to children in need.
