Priscila Dilley, senior officer, Leadership Academy Network

The Leadership Academy Network is an innovative partnership between Texas Wesleyan University and Fort Worth ISD designed to maintain and grow academic success at five once-struggling PK-8 campuses. In a newly formed position in Texas Wesleyan’s School of Education, Dilley oversees curriculum, instruction, administration and student development at the District’s Leadership Academies 

Dilley is known as a visionary leader with a keen sense for strategy and forward thinking. She is a native of Brazil who moved to Texas as an eager fifth-grader. She graduated from Dallas Baptist University with a bachelor’s degree and began her career as a bilingual teacher for Irving ISD. In 2004, Dilley joined Fort Worth ISD as a campus administrator and later served as principal of South Hills Elementary, where she led the school to double-digit gains every year. With that success, Fort Worth ISD brought Dilley to its central office in 2013 to support multiple campuses. In 2018, she was named executive director of the District’s newly formed Office of Innovation and Transformation—where she helped revamp challenged schools and offer new education options, including the Leadership Academy model.
