Follow along as we construct new Portage North and Central Middle Schools, renovate West Middle School and the Portage Community Education Center, add athletic event facilities and pools to Portage Northern and Central High Schools.
Technology investment will bring 1-1 computing to the Portage Learning Community, and new buses will enhance our transportation services.
On Monday, February 29th the School Board approved the campus master plans for the new middle schools, pools and athletic event facilities. The plans were the result of work between the project architects c2ae/Stantec, the district's steering committee and advisory groups to arrive at construction zones for the new facilities. These groups worked closely together to develop the preferred plans from a number of options developed for each site. Now that the master plan is approved, design work can begin. The architects, steering committee members and advisory groups will be narrowing down more specific site locations and facility designs based on site surveys, construction requirements, topography, set back requirements from the City of Portage and Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) as well as other architectural and engineering considerations.
The next steps include:
Meeting with Steering Committee and Advisory Groups for design charettes
Creating a schematic design of each facility
Developing a project sequence
