Pay to Participate
Portage Public Schools asks families to help offset the cost of providing extra-curricular activities through the ‘Pay-to-Participate’ plan. The plan off-sets part off the costs of providing these programs, but is a positive alternative to eliminating programs.
The Pay-to-Participate is for students at the middle and high school levels (grades 6-12) participating in extracurricular activities. It includes varsity athletics, all intramural sports, as well as certain clubs and other extra-curricular activities, like musical productions, play productions, debate and forensics – except when students are participating in these activities as a class.
