STEVENS POINT, Wis (WSAU) More employees in the Stevens Point Area School District have agreed to a pay freeze for the next year. They say it sends the right message during these tough economic times, as the school prepares to ask for additional funding from voters in a November referendum.
The Support Services Group made the announcement yesterday. The pay freeze would be in effect for the 2010-11 budget cycle. They say it will allow more of the money voters approve to go to students in the classroom.
The school superintendent, school board, and operational support staff have already agreed to freeze pay next year.

Editor's note: An earlier version of this story was headlined that "SPASH" support staff were accepting a pay freeze. The new headline reflects that support staff in the entire school district have agreed to a pay freeze, not just the high school.
