Superintendent's Office

Welcome to the Portage Area School District

     I am proud to welcome you to our website. We at the Portage Area School District have come to enjoy, and expect, nothing but the best from administrators, teaching staff, students and parents. It is this shared attitude and vision that has made our district one of the finest in the mainline area. I want you to know that we are committed to making this district a quality and sustainable institution of learning with a marked emphasis on service to our students, parents and community residents. We ask that you utilize this site as a valuable resource to keep abreast of the events and progress of our district, which is a vital connection and integral part of the Portage Area community. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you, both educationally and communally, to help make the Portage Area “The Gem of the Mainline.”  

Yours in education,
Eric A. Zelanko
Superintendent of Schools
