CARTER COUNTY, Okla. -- Big changes are coming to two Carter County school districts.

Dickson High School Matt Krimmer said the district has been busy upgrading technology.

"We are turning one of our computer labs into a multimedia lab, which will have 3-D printing, map printing, green screen technology... all that stuff," he said.

The Dickson Public Schools administration building is also being repurposed as a cafeteria.

"Right now, we have elementary kids eating at 10:30 in the morning and high school kids eating at 1 in the afternoon, which is not conducive to learning; they're hungry," Krimmer said.

Also: Brick will be added to bleachers at the football stadium and to signage around campus.

Ardmore City Schools Superintendent Kim Holland said final plans are underway to start work on the district's new performing arts center.

"It's a beautiful building, and I think it's going to be something the entire city will be proud of," he said. "We're hoping that the school district as well as the community will get many years of service out of it, and make good use of it."

The Ardmore district is hoping to break ground on the performing arts center at the end of October.

And despite construction now in progress at Jefferson Elementary, students there will attend regular classes this fall. Holland said the project is right on schedule.

"If you were to drive by you'd see the concrete fitting about how big the new gym and auditorium are going to be," he said.
