DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Embattled Dallas Independent School District (DISD) Superintendent Mike Miles had some news for board trustees — he’s moving his family out of Texas.

Saying that they don’t like the pressure the family is under, Miles confirmed that his wife and child are moving.

In a statement released late Monday morning Miles said, “My wife Karen and I have made a decision that she and our youngest son will move back to Colorado Springs later this month in time for him to start school.”

Calling it a “difficult decision” Miles said the choice was centered on what’s best for his son.

The superintendent said when back in Colorado his son would not only be able to go to school with his friends, but that removing him from North Texas would also, “…insulate him from the negative media attention that has taken a toll on both him and my wife.”

On Monday DISD spokesperson Jon Dahlander explained further saying, “There is constant media attention on the Superintendent, that’s part of it.  The other part is his son grew up in Colorado Springs has friends up there, family as well. So, a support system is already in place.”

District restructuring, staffing changes and most recently an in-house report questioning Miles decision in the awarding of a $200,000 DISD contract, have fueled calls for his resignation.

Despite the fact that a former U.S. Attorney has been hired to further look into the DISD Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) report, Miles said he has no plans to leave the district. “I am absolutely steadfast in my commitment to serve the children and staff of Dallas ISD and implement systems that will help Dallas children learn and give hope to their dreams.”

As for the OPR report, Miles has denied any violation of policy of law and said it is his responsibility to make the final determination on procurement recommendations. Former U.S. Attorney Paul Coggins will have until the last week of the month to review and complete his investigation.
