The Portage Community School District has partnered with area preschools to provide tuition free preschool for all children that will be 4 years of age on or before September 1st and live within the Portage Community School District.  Each preschool may have a separate one-time registration and/or supply fee.  In order to qualify for the free tuition, you must supply the following forms to the school district, in addition to any forms each preschool may require:

 1.  Portage School District Enrollment Form 2017-2018

 2.  Home Language Survey 2017-2018

 3.  Annual Health Update 2017-2018

4.  Immunization Form 2017-2018               

You may print off each form, fill out completely, making sure to sign where needed and send to the following address (Note: This does not hold a spot at a specific preschool, we will make every effort to accommodate your request.  You must contact the preschool directly to reserve your spot.)

Please send forms to:
