DALLAS (CBS 11 NEWS) - Several Dallas Independent School District leaders are on their way out, while others are getting new positions. Superintendent Mike Miles is implementing the changes, saying it’s a way for him to fine tune management of the district.

Four DISD staff members will take on new roles, all of which are familiar faces within the district. Another two are departing the district.

Dr. James Terry has been officially named Chief Financial Officer, a position he has filled in an interim role since 2011.

Carmen Darville moves to her new role as Chief of Human Capital Management, which handles recruitment and staffing. Darville has been in a leadership role in that same department for the past year and replaces Kevin Smelker, who has decided to retire.

The fourth and final addition to Miles’ senior management team is Wanda Paul. She has been with the district December and steps up from her role as Executive Director of Operations to Chief of Operations. Paul takes over for Charles Glover who is leaving to a new job with a non-profit.

Superintendent Miles wished his former cabinet members well and released this statement about the announced changes:

“This opportunity also gives us the chance to reevaluate our needs and structure. To that end, I believe it is important to diversify the senior administrative team with internal talent that has served the district with distinction.”

Miles also announced he will eliminate the Chief of Staff position, previously held by Jerome Oberlton. Oberlton resigned in May, shortly before he was indicted on federal charges stemming from his time as an executive for the Atlanta’s school system.
