Crouse's Master Facility Plan
The new Crouse Community Learning Center includes classrooms, large activity spaces, the Crouse Caring Community office and physical activity areas. Each classroom includes overhead digital projectors, marker boards and cabinet storage. Students will learn in a light-filled physical environment that is comfortably heated and cooled with state-of-the-art mechanical systems.
Large-group activity spaces include a gymnasium and dining hall that can also be used for testing, community meetings and awards ceremonies. A stage is attached to the dining hall and equipped with performance-quality sound and lighting systems. Special spaces include art and music classrooms and a media center/LRC. Every room includes technology that connects to the larger world.
There will be a large playground for kids to burn off all their extra energy. Children can play in a setting that is safe and fun.
All designs are the work of an
architectural firm from one of six firms, which comprise the Akron
Architectural Group. AAG architects work with Akron Public Schools
architects on each site. The architectural firm designing the Crouse
Community Learning Center was URS Corporation. John George was the
Akron Public Schools liaison
