Dedication The Findley CLC dedication took place on Wednesday, December 16, at 5:30 p.m. Students began attending classes in the new building on Monday, November 30, 2009.
A new school was constructed
on the existing site. Students relocated to the old Jennings Middle
School building until the new school was built.
Every classroom in the Findley CLC comes equipped with the latest in technology. Each classroom contains a new projector which allows teachers to connect to the Internet, play audio and display video on a large screen. Other features include better lighting; up-to-date heating, ventilation and AC; and improved, safer and better-equipped kitchen equipment. A new gymnasium was designed to make fitness fun. Colors like green, yellow, orange and blue evoke a sense of calm and freshness. The new building also boasts enhanced security, with a controlled entry allowing staff to monitor school visitors. Cameras monitor outside entrances and corridors, and exterior doors are secured while school is in session. A new playground is surfaced with safety material and enclosed by a fence.
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 Findley
Community Learning Center was Braun & Steidl
Architects Inc. (John Wheeler, project
