Sam Salem's Master Facility Plan
The new Sam Salem Community Learning Center sits on 5.7 acres to the south of the existing school, which allowed for the existing school to remain open throughout the construction process. The CLC is constructed of field-red concrete masonry units with dark red and buff accent bands of concrete masonry units. The two-story educational wing located close to Waterloo Road has pitched roofs with 21 classrooms, the art room and the LRC. The other wing of the building houses the office suite, gym, cafeteria and music rooms. The gym and cafeteria can be enlarged with a movable partition that allows for a meeting area with a stage at the end. This wing is visible from 26th Street. In the center of the two wings is the main entrance, which is a two-story glass atrium with a pitched roof. A parking lot will be constructed where the old building is located. The parking lot and drop-off area are located west of the building and accessible from 26th Street. This will direct most of the vehicle and bus traffic to the north side of the building and separate it from the playground, located to the south of the building.

Architects
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 designedthe Sam Salem Community Learning Center was TC Architects. Fred Herr was the Akron Public Schools liaison.
