Back-To-School Update – August 12, 2020

Portage Lakes Career Center’s administration has worked tirelessly to develop more specific details regarding the restart of our 2020 school year that will bring students & staff back to school in the safest manner possible while still allowing our students the opportunity to receive all of the benefits of a career & technical education (CTE). We will begin our school year with students reporting in person ONLY for their CTE program Monday through Friday, with additional safety precautions in place. All students who have enrolled as full-day students will receive their academic courses remotely from home Monday – Friday. Please click the link below to find additional important information about the hybrid approach we are taking as we reopen and bring students and staff back to PLCC.

Portage Lakes Career Center Back To School 2020

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.
