Community Learning Centers
The CLC program is part of an aggressive, 15-year plan to remodel or rebuild Akron Public Schools and transform the buildings into "community learning centers."
With joint funding from the state and local community, more than $800 million was available for this program, making it the largest construction opportunity in the history of Akron.
We have rebuilt, remodeled or restored 39 buildings.
CLCs benefit everyone:
- Students get the best education possible through state-of-the-art facilities and classroom technology.
- Taxpayers get the best value for their dollars.
- During regular school hours, CLCs serve as the modern school facilities Akron kids and teachers need.
- After school, on weekends and during the summer, many can be used for recreation, adult education, after-school and summer school programs, and a wide variety of community activities.
