Middle School Pay To Participate Information

Portage Public Schools, along with most school districts in Michigan, have made significant cost reductions over the past couple of years 
as a result of a decrease in the per-pupil funding from the State of Michigan.  Fortunately, rather than eliminate extra-curricular programs, we
have a Pay to Participate plan in place that helps to subsidize the current programs and allows us to continue to offer great extra-curricular activities.

This will be a one-time, annual fee -per student - regardless of the number of extra-curricular activities in which
a student participates. The actual fee calculation can be determined on the worksheet found at the bottom of this page. 

Fees

The fees to participate in Basketball, Football, Track, Volleyball, and Wrestling are:
$75 per middle school student
$37.50 per middle school student if they qualify for reduced lunch.
$18.75 Per middle school student if they qualify for free lunch

The fees to participate in Cross Country, Musical Productions, Swimming/ Diving and Tennis Club are:
$30 per middle school student
$15 per middle school student if they qualify for reduced lunch.
