New Principal Announced at OHS, Pending School Board Approval


Pending school board approval, Ottumwa High School will have its first female principal.

According to the Ottumwa Community School District, Shelly Bramschreiber–currently the associate principal at the high school–will be recommended to the Board of Education on January 10th to become the next principal at OHS. Bramschriber is tabbed to replace the outgoing Principal Mark Hanson who will be retiring. In a statement, Hanson offered his endorsement.

“Shelley is absolutely qualified for this position,” said Hanson. “She knows OHS well, she knows Ottumwa, she is an outstanding curriculum and instruction person, and I believe she is going to do great things at OHS.”

If approved, Bramschreiber will officially step into the principal’s role on July 2nd. The school district says Bramschriber started her career at Ottumwa Schools in 1994 as a math teacher at Evans Middle School. She has been an administrator at Evans and OHS since 2013.

In a statement, Bramschreiber conveyed how excited she is to get started.

I’ve taught here, been an administrator, and have been a part of the district for over 20 years,” Bramschreiber said. “I’ve been part of the excellent things happening and want to continue to be a part of our efforts to become one of the best high schools in the state.”
