The community is invited to join us for the latest information on plans for the start of construction next spring on the new North Middle School, Portage Northern High School Athletic Facilities and the new pool at Portage Central High School The facilities will be the first to be completed under the $144 bond projects approved by voters in November 2015.

District Administrators and Project Architects will be on hand to present plans for Phase 1. Exterior plans and interior layouts for the new North and Central Middle Schools, Northern High School athletic facilities and Central High School’s pools will also be shared.  We will walk attendees through the construction documents and have updated information on construction timelines.  Time will  be set aside for questions from the audience.

  • Rebuilding Portage North and Portage Central Middle Schools
  • Updating Portage West Middle School
  • Building athletic facilities and pools at Portage Northern and Portage Central High Schools
