Community Learning Centers
Akron Public Schools is currently undergoing reconstruction of its buildings. Through a partnership with the City of Akron and OSFC, schools in the Akron Public Schools district will be rebuilt or remodeled to become community learning centers by 2015. These are schools by day and community learning centers by night and weekends.
Seventeen CLCs are complete and another 7 are in the design or construction stage. The City of Akron is responsible for scheduling the use of these buildings after school hours.

—Kate Millett (b. 1934)
