TO REGISTER FOR ENRICHMENT CLASSES: Complete registration form and mail fee to the Portage Community Education Office, 8111 S. Westnedge, Portage, MI 49002. Or, visit us in person at 8107 Mustang Drive, Portage, MI 49002. Make checks payable to Portage Public Schools. We also accept phone (323-6700) or fax (323-5001) registrations using Visa, MasterCard or Discover, OR - ONLINE. We do not send confirmations by mail. If you provide an email address, you will receive an email confirmation each time you register for a program.
If registering online, please be sure to complete all required (*) fields for the class you are registering for. If a required field is bypassed, you will be unable to complete the registration/sale.
GOLD CARD HOLDERS: Receive a 10% reduction in charges on your class fees. (Applies to most classes.) Please call the office before registering to verify correct charges. To receive the discount, you will need to register with a staff person either in person or over the phone (with a credit card). You may also register by mailing a check to the Portage Community Education Office.
REFUND POLICIES: A full refund will be issued if it is necessary for us to cancel a class/program because of insufficient enrollment.
If the enrolled student calls at least three business days before the first class meeting, a refund will be issued, minus a $5 processing fee. If you cancel after the deadline, you will not qualify for a refund. If the class you are dropping still has the minimum enrollment needed to run, you may transfer your registration to another session or use it as a credit toward a different class.
No refunds or credits will be issued after the class/program has met a second time.
No refunds or credits will be issued for one-time programs unless the request is received at least three business days in advance. (You may designate a substitute participant if you are unable to attend.)
RETURN CHECKS: A $25 fee will be assessed for returned checks.
SNOW DAY/SCHOOL CANCELLATION PROCEDURES: A reminder on the procedure we follow in the event classes are cancelled:
1. If schools are closed during the day, night classes and activities are automatically cancelled unless your instructors has stated a different school closure policy.
2. If an afternoon storm develops and it becomes necessary to cancel evening classes, the following is done: Teachers are notified and asked to try and contact students; Announcements are made on area radio and television stations after 4:00 p.m.
3. Please remember: Occasionally weather conditions at 4:00 or 4:30 may not be ideal, but are still good enough to permit the holding of classes. However, they can suddenly worsen at 5:00 or 5:30, in which case it’s almost impossible to announce cancellation at that time. If that should happen, you must use your own judgment regarding attendance. (The night number of 323-6700 may be called.)
4. Every effort will be made to make up time lost due to cancellation.
