Local FCCLA members and officers receive leadership training...
Five students from the Dickson Family, Career and Community Leaders of America chapter recently attended leadership training with other chapters and local officers. The Lead Conference, one of 10 planned around the state, was held in Sept. 2015 at The Ardmore Convention Center. Officers and members from chapters in districts 3 & 4 in the SW Region attended. Attending from Dickson were Madi Stringfellow, Kailey Evans, Bailey Mitchell, Azlin Sanchez and Davis Hayes. The conferences are designed to train chapter members and officers to become effective leaders within their local chapters, said Denise Morris, Oklahoma FCCLA adviser at the Oklahoma Department of Career and Technology Education. They replace local officer training sessions that some districts hosted and are intended to provide consistent training across the state, she explained.“The Lead Conferences were designed as another piece of leadership training for Oklahoma FCCLA,” Morris said. “Chapter officers should leave the conference with the tools needed to move their chapter and its members from good to great.” District officers led the workshop, which focused on teamwork, membership growth, successful STAR Event presentations, social media and chapter programs of work. Oklahoma FCCLA serves more than 11,000 members in 395 local chapters in junior and senior high schools and on technology center campuses. Known as the "ultimate leadership experience," participation in FCCLA national programs
and chapter activities helps members become strong leaders in their families, careers, and communities.FCCLA’s mission is “to promote personal growth and leadership development through family and consumer sciences education,” according to the National FCCLA website. It is the only CareerTech student organization with family as its central focus. FCCLA is one of seven CareerTech student organizations affiliated with CareerTech programs. It is affiliated with family and consumer sciences. The other six CTSOs are SkillsUSA (trade and industrial education), FFA (agricultural education), DECA (marketing education), HOSA (health careers education), Business Professionals of America (business and information technology education) and Technology Student Association (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).

In June 2010, the Dickson School Board adopted a 24/7 tobacco free school policy which prohibits tobacco use on school property and at school events for everyone, at all times, even when school is out of session.
In May 2014, the district added e-cigarettes and vaping devices to the policy.
