Akron in Action is a Ford NGL Community Experience ... a three-day event designed to demonstrate how Akron Public Schools mobilized the entire Akron community to build and sustain the College & Career Academies of Akron.

Participants will have the opportunity to:
  • learn about the opportunities and challenges of being a mid-size urban district in the early phases of academy implementation;
  • see the high school and middle school academies in action through school and nonprofit partner tours;
  • interact with students, teachers, academy principals, academy coaches and business partners to learn about the important foundations of CCAA;
  • understand how Akron Public Schools is designing a PreK-12 academy model to ensure a high level of student success; and
  • learn how to customize educators' experience by attending breakout sessions relevant to their interests and district.
Today, they are visiting schools and non-profit partners to learn about how partnerships have formed to make C&CAA work stronger.

Tomorrow, educators will enjoy personalized schedules of breakout sessions covering a wide variety of College & Career Academy topics.

Photos are from the opening event at the Knight Center. Students were front and center featured as the keynote speaker, emcee and artistic performers.
