Portage Public Schools operates within a neighborhood schools model as defined by the geographical boundaries established at the district level. Families should expect, and are required, to enroll their children in the school(s) corresponding with their resident address. Not sure the school to which your child is assigned? Check out our attendance boundaries.
Portage recently launched a new online enrollment system to provide families with greater convenience to begin the enrollment process from anywhere, anytime. If your family is new to Portage Public Schools, we encourage you to enroll your student(s) using our online registration process.
If you are a current Portage family with other students already enrolled in the district, to register online, please do so using Skyward Family Access.
If you are not able to enroll online, please contact your school for paper enrollment forms.
