DALLAS (CBS 11 NEWS) - An unflattering investigation of Dallas Independent School District Superintendent Mike Miles could chart a path toward the end of his reign in Dallas.  Some are calling for his removal, after an internal report on influence and intimidation surfaced.

The DISD Board of Trustees will meet Monday evening to decide whether to continue the investigation using an outside source or take the information it already has to decide Miles’ future.

CBS 11 obtained a 38 page report, detailing a series of complaints filed against Miles by former DISD communications chief Rebecca Rodriguez. In the report, Rodriguez claims Miles used his influence to add “The Concilio,”a parent education advocacy group, to a 200-thousand dollar DISD contract.  The contract was discussed at the June 13 board meeting, which fueled the feud between Miles and Rodriguez.  The next day, Rodriguez filed a complaint against Miles accusing him of bullying.

Miles later ordered a suspension of the investigation into his actions.  The chief compliance officer overseeing the investigation said the Miles also contacted potential witnesses and may have tried to obstruct the investigation

“It is my responsibility to make the final determination on procurement recommendations to the board of trustees” Miles said of the contract controversy.

Of his involvement in the investigation, Miles has only issued a statement about the accusations against him.

“I considered a suspension of the…investigation for a short time because we were in negotiations with the former employee…”

Rodriguez submitted her resignation on June 25, less than four months after accepting the position, which pays a base salary of $155,0000.   She was the second communications chief to leave under the Miles administration.
