Superintendent's Message

Dear Parents and Community,

Welcome to the Houghton-Portage Township School District. Our vision is to be a premier school district where all students have the foundations for success and are challenged to reach their full potential. Our district is focused on providing a quality education for each child.

We provide a safe and healthy environment where all students can collaborate, problem solve, and reach their individual potential. The level of success that our students achieve is outstanding. We recognize that the measure of annual success is not only based on annual yearly progress as measured by the Michigan Department of Education, but also on our ability to review and assess student data to improve instruction to increase achievement. Graduates of our school realize post-secondary academic success because of the preparation received in the K - 12 educational environment. Ultimately our goal is that all students show improved academic achievement.

During my tenure as a district administrator, I have witnessed this community's commitment to educational excellence. It is my privilege to serve the students and families of the Houghton-Portage School District and I look forward to working with you in the upcoming year.


Doreen L. Kramer
Superintendent of Schools
