Washburn Tech is opening temporary classrooms Monday while the new Washburn Tech East location is still under construction. Students will start taking classes at the Antioch Family Life Center at 1921 SE Indiana Ave, just a block away from the new location.
The new location offers courses like building technology, health aide, commercial truck driving and GED along with English as a Second Language classes.
The new Washburn Tech East location is scheduled to open this summer and is expected to see up to 400 students each year.
There are currently 87 students enrolled in classes at the new location. Prospective students can call 785.670.2200 to learn more or head down to the temporary location. Financial aid and scholarships are available to those who qualify.
