Regarding College & Career Academies
Here is an excerpt from Akron Public Schools Superintendent David James' end-of-the-school-year
Our most ambitious effort remains our College & Career Academies of Akron (C&CAA). This transformation
of high school education in Akron is being received with an enormous amount of enthusiasm from our community
of families and our business community. I fully expect the enthusiasm to continue to be high as we keep you
up to date on how many partners are becoming our allies in education. College & Career Academies of Akron has
more than a dozen corporate partners already, and we're just getting started.
The benefits we are already seeing, even as this program is still early in its development, are the connections
our students are making with potential employers, career opportunities and higher education. We have made the
connection now between education and careers that our city has struggled with up until now because it did not
have a strong connection between school and business communities.
There are many exciting announcements in the pipeline, as we say, that will be coming out of our C&CAA in the
coming months. The influences of these programs are soon to be trickling down throughout Akron Public Schools
so that our families will benefit from K through 12 from this team approach to educating our children. This is
is a list of the Academies and career pathways for all Akron high schools.
Summer Food Program
The City of Akron, in partnership with the Akron Public Schools, is again

to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session. Any family
eligible for the school lunch program will be eligible for the summer program.

Art Is Where You Find It
See where they found it
Art is where you find it. And East Middle School students found their art
in materials that they recycled and glued onto a framed surface to create the montage you
see in the picture below.
The project was a collaboration involving students from Tom Ely's Gateway to Technology
class and Emily Watson's art class.
This completed work of art is on display outside the school's main office.

Thanks to a $500,000 KeyBank grant
Financial Learning Center
Coming to East
The East Cluster will be the beneficiary of a $500,000 grant from the
Part of this grant, which will be funnelled through the United Way of Summit County,
will be used to establish a finance learning lab at East High School as part of the implementation of
the Akron Public Schools' College and Career
The finance learning lab will be a component of the Finance career
within the Academy of Business and Health Services at East and will begin operation in the 2019-2020 school year.
