Welcome to the Dodd Elementary School website!  Dodd is one of eleven elementary schools within the Wylie Independent School District in Wylie, Texas. Our campus consists of pre-kindergarten through fourth-grade students. Our outstanding teaching staff, along with parents, and the community work together to provide a positive school environment in which students can achieve success in all areas: academically, socially, emotionally, and physically.

Dodd Elementary was built in 1999. Our school home was named for R.C. Dodd, a lifetime educator who spent most of his professional career in Wylie. He was employed by Wylie ISD in 1953 as a coach and in 1956 was named principal of Wylie Junior High School, a position he held until he died in 1976. Mr. Dodd was known throughout the community as a man who genuinely cared about young people and had a remarkable influence on hundreds of lives. Additionally, Mr. Dodd served two terms on the Wylie City Council, was elected mayor of Wylie, and served as president of the Wylie Chamber of Commerce and Wylie Lions Club.

He and his wife Geline, who retired in 1997 after a 47-year teaching career, were active members of the Church of Christ. Our staff and students strive daily to honor the legacy of Mr. Dodd by working hard and upholding our school's and district's values.
