Board Approves New Construction In December 1976, the Ottumwa Community School district received a S2,394,998 grant from the federal government for the construction of a new vocational- technical high school building. The building will be a two-story, 50,000 square foot design to be erected just west of the high school. The new building will serve approximately 500 students each day. This close location will eliminate the costly waste of time for students traveling by bus to the Benton Street structure. The new vocational-technical building will also be used for various adult education classes and federally sponsored retraining programs. The new school will offer students courses in the fields of auto mechanics, auto body work, building, drafting, electronics, metal work, plastics, welding, and woodwork- ing. Plans are also 'being made to relocate the music department and Driver's Education. Dr. William Dabb, Superintendent of the Ottumwa community Schools, said, "This culminates a great deal of hard work, by everyone on the board and in my opinion, it's the greatest thing that could happen to our school district. In fact, it's the greatest thing that could happen to the city of OttumWa." The building is expected to be open to students in the fall of 1978. 1 III Superintendent of Schools-Dr. William Dabb.
