PORTAGE, MI -- The Portage Public Schools Board of Education has approved a one-year contract for the members of the Portage Education Association that continues to freeze base pay scale at the 2011-12 level, but will give teachers "step" increases. Step increases are raises associated with years of service, and not all teachers qualify, especially veteran faculty members.
