Mike Miles still DISD's superintendent

Posted: Updated:

Dallas ISD board members met for four hours behind closed doors Thursday night, but as of Friday morning Mike Miles is still the superintendent.

Trustees discussed an investigation which determined that although Miles didn't break any laws, he violated district policy and his contract.

The trustees are considering possible consequences.

Miles gave a statement saying there are things he could have done better, but he's focused on improving the district.

A teachers group had encouraged the school board to fire the superintendent.

Alliance AFT wants Miles gone immediately and an ex-superintendent to be an interim leader. The group said Miles' leadership is flawed and many in the district have lost confidence in him.

"Never once have I seen a superintendent have three to four investigations within his first year of employment," said Rena Honea, Alliance/AFT President.

Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings said Thursday morning he hoped the board would stand behind Miles.

"He's focused on the right things, he wants a great principal in every school and a great teacher in front of him. His sense of urgency is good. I'm behind him 100 percent," Rawlings said.
