Results of DISD Miles investigation expected

Posted: Updated:

Dallas Independent School District board members were expected to get their first look at findings Thursday night from the former U.S. attorney hired to investigate Superintendent Mike Miles.

Miles has been accused of trying to go outside the proper bidding procedures for a contract proposal.

The district hired Former U.S. Attorney Paul Coggins to investigate if Miles broke the district's rules by keeping the board from voting on a contract for a parent-educator, because it didn't include a vendor he favored.

Former DISD Chief of Communications Rebecca Rodriguez took her complaints over Miles interference to the district's Office of Professional Responsibility.

Miles is also accused of bullying Rodriguez after the internal investigation was launched.

Coggins was hired after further allegations came that Miles had suspended the investigation.

"What is this elected board willing to do to make sure that our district becomes functional, to what most people say would go back to normalcy, to where they can teach the students?" Rena Honea, Alliance AFT, asked. "Or is this chaos going to be continued to go on."
