District Advisory Council
The District Advisory Council meets monthly throughout the school year providing a critical link between Portage Schools and the community. DAC members provide two-way communications by bringing grass-roots input to the group and by taking information back to their schools or organizations. The Council, which often serves the role as a focus group or think-tank for the District, serves in an advisory capacity to the superintendent.
