OTTUMWA, Iowa (KYOU) - The name “Market on Main” is no more. Ottumwa Schools staff have given it the official name of “Career Campus”. It will serve as a hub for Career and Technical Education courses.

At Monday night’s board meeting, Aiddy Phomvisay, the district’s new Teaching and Learning Director, revealed that 424 students have enrolled in these new courses.

He highlighted the students taking health science classes. “It is such a needed field in our community. But it also is an opportunity for our students to engage with our community and stay right here in our town to serve us.”

The campus is currently under construction. District leaders have said they want the building up and running by the start of the 2021 Academic Year in August.
