Welcome to Dyess Elementary!

My name is Chad Drake and I am so excited to begin my third year as Principal of Dyess Elementary School.  I am very proud to have grown up in AISD schools.  I attended Crockett Elementary, Lincoln Middle School and Abilene High School.  I received my undergraduate degree from Texas Tech and my Master of Education in Educational Leadership from Lubbock Christian University.  Dyess Elementary has an incredible legacy of success and I am honored to join such a fantastic team.

Parents, please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns.  I am committed to partnering with you to make Dyess the best that it can be.  I am looking forward to a wonderful school year!
