Dedication
The Hyre CLC dedication took place on Thursday, September 29, 2011, at 3:30 p.m. Students began attending classes in the new building on Thursday, September 1, 2011.

Hyre's Master Facility Plan
The new Hyre CLC is a two-story, 131,000-square-foot structure in a U shape. A pair of wings incorporate classrooms; science labs; and technology, art and special education rooms. The wings are joined by a two-story, curved, brick, colonnaded canopy entrance. Grades 6-7 are located in the west wing, with grade 8 and the life learning facilities in the east wing. Traditional architectural elements of detailed red brick, low gabled roof lines and decorative stone coursings and caps are combined with spacious, modern learning areas. The atrium entry and cafeteria feature 30-foot-high ceilings of exposed roof decking and structural steel. The gym is large enough for two basketball courts and roll-out bleacher seating for 1,250 people. The building is situated on the northern edge of the school's property (where a soccer field and baseball diamond once stood).

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 designing the Hyre Community Learning Center was TC Architects (Todd Westover, project architect). John George was the Akron Public Schools liaison.
