Portage schools get new website
A new website unveiled this month should make information about Portage schools easier to find.
The school district’s old website didn’t work very well on mobile devices, such as cellphones and tablets, which is one thing the revamped version seeks to improve, said District Administrator Margaret Rudolph.
With a fresh look and better colors comes a more user-friendly experience, she said, due to the work of Director of Technology Sue Conner.
“We also wanted to make it so that people would have access to it if there were some accommodations that they would need, and so we just kind of put it all in one,” Rudolph said.
The website, www.portage.k12.wi.us, offers a calendar of events, information about various programs and services, links for the individual schools, families and community members and several links as icons to make their meaning clear, including a lunch bag that links to school lunch menus.
