DISD School Board meets to discuss investigation into Superintendent Mike Miles

Posted: Updated:

                The Dallas school board met Saturday behind closed doors at the administration building to discuss results of an investigation into actions by DISD Superintendent Mike Miles.  The board reached no decision, but for five and a half hours, talked about both the internal audit by the office of professional responsibility, and how the audit transitioned into the independent report by former U.S. Attorney Paul Coggins.

                The meeting came just days after an independent investigation cleared Miles of bullying and rigging a bid for a vendor contract.  But, the board found Miles violated policy by tampering with potential witnesses in an earlier investigation, and that he played a role in publicly humiliating trustees by co-writing a former cabinet member's resignation letter that had a tone critical of the board, actions considered grounds for termination.

                Outside of the administration building, activists including Joyce Foreman called for Miles' resignation.  "We want to send the board a very strong message that we don't think Superintendent Mike Miles is the guy for this job."  Back inside, DISD Trustee Lew Blackburn took a more patient tone. "We expect to sit down with the superintendent and hear his version and his responses to the investigation report."  That closed session meeting is expected next Thursday.
