“Keeping promises is important. We have great staff in this district. This is a great next step for Tooele County School District and will help us to be more competitive with teacher salaries in Utah,” said Superintendent Scott Rogers.
The Tentative Agreement also includes establishing committees to look at “best practices” for all faculty/district meetings, student cell phone/digital device usage, and recess/physical activity.
“We really appreciate the collaborative efforts between the TEA and TCSD Administration," said Rick Harrison, TEA Vice-President. "We also thank our Board of Education for making improved employee compensation a priority. This would not be possible without great community support and approval of the voted levy. We have been working hard on this for the last several years. Thank you, Tooele County residents!”
The agreement is now forwarded to the Tooele Education Association membership for ratification and to the Board of Education for final approval.
