Jennings' Master Facility Plan
The new, three-story Jennings
Community Learning Center was built north of the existing
school along Dayton Street. The modern look of the exterior
includes glass and masonry and features a two-story atrium
allowing light to flow into the lower level. The lower level
includes a gym, student dining room, music room and mechanical
spaces. It will house classrooms, a media center, art rooms and
administrative offices. The second floor contains regular
classrooms and life-skill labs. The new CLC includes stone
medallions and a stone "surround" from the west entry of the old
Jennings Middle School.
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
that designed the Jennings Community Learning Center was URS
Corporation. Gerald Taylor was the Akron Public Schools liaison.
