The Dallas ISD Board of Trustees announced after their meeting and a public discussion which followed it on Thursday night that a decision on what the superintendent’s fate will be “will come by the end of the month,” reported ABC News affiliate WFAA Midday News on Friday, Sep. 20. Members of the Dallas Independent School District board met on Thursday, Sep. 19, in closed door sessions with Superintendent Mike Miles to hear the superintendent’s side in regard to the investigation concluded earlier in September. The independent investigation conducted by former U.S. attorney Paul Coggins, ended with a report which found that Miles violated board policy and his employment contract. For now, the board has delayed taking a vote on the superintendent’s future with Dallas ISD.
In a lengthy closed door meeting Superintendent Miles discussed his administrative practices with the board. Following the board’s meeting, the public was given the opportunity to participate in the discussion on the findings of the report which concluded that the superintendent broke district policy rules, but did not break any laws.
