DICKSON, Okla. (KTEN) — Two major construction projects are in the works at Dickson Public Schools, amounting to around $9.5 million.

The projects include constructing a brand new field house, as well as making renovations and expansions to the ag education building.

Both projects will be funded by a bond package that was approved by taxpayers on April 2.

The field house will feature a new weight room, locker rooms for boys and girls teams, and an indoor wrestling facility.

The ag education building will be getting a facelift as well, with new classrooms, and new tin siding.

Superintendent Jamie Mitchell said these projects have been a goal of his since he started as Dickson superintendent last year.

"By modernizing everything and the look that we're going for with the new field house, and also the new ag facilities, it's gonna dress things up,” Mitchell said. “I think it's going to bring a lot of pride to our student body; to just give them something new to show that the district is investing in our kids."

Mitchell said it could be as long as two years before both projects are completed.
