Back-To-School Important Update – August 3, 2020

Just Announced…Portage Lakes Career Center will offer a choice of both virtual and in-person academic classes.  PLCC will NOT offer this option for its career and technical education classes (labs) unless mandated by a complete state shutdown.  However, if your student would like to attend PLCC in-person for lab and virtually for academics, we will be able to accommodate that decision. This virtual academic option is ONLY available to students who opted for and were admitted into full-day PLCC schedules.   Students must commit to a virtual nine-week academic choice and must agree to attend academic classes at the same time they would attend during the regular school day (or be considered absent).

Students will need to register for virtual academic classes by contacting their school counselors.
