Community Learning Centers
Akron Public Schools is currently undergoing a massive construction process for all of its buildings. Through a partnership with the City of Akron, by 2017, every school in the Akron Public Schools' district will be rebuilt or remodeled to become a state-of-the-art community learning center. CLCs are schools by day and community learning centers by night and on weekends.
Twenty-eight CLCs are complete. The new schools will be equipped with tools that keep pace with ever-changing technology and 21st-century jobs. Children enjoy cleaner, brighter learning environments; safer, more secure buildings; better breakfast and lunch facilities; and more opportunities for enrichment and special-needs students. The City of Akron is responsible for scheduling the buildings after school hours.
