DALLAS (CBS 11 NEWS) - Dallas Independent School Superintendent Mike Miles says he plans to remain in his job, despite calls for him to resign.

As Miles spoke to the Dallas Regional Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday to give a report on the state of the district, he did not mention the completed investigation that could cost him his job.  The investigation found no violations of law.

The report, now known as the Coggins Report, found that Miles violated district policy and possibly the terms of his contract as superintendent.  Former U.S. Attorney Paul Coggins lead the investigation and compiled the report.

In his first public statements since the release of that report, Miles told the Chamber audience that he plans to stay in the driver’s seat.

His only acknowledgement of the headlines and headaches he has faced over the past year was the following statement: ” “So I been watching the news a bit…and thinking about changing my name,” Miles said.

The Board of Trustees will review the entire report on Saturday, and they could vote to remove him from his position.  But Miles says he expects to keep his job.

“You know, I said at the luncheon today that I’m here. I’m committed to the kids of DISD. I’m not going anywhere. I’m moving forward, and our staff has a new year underway, and we’re going to continue to do that,” Miles told reporters.

DISD Board President Eric Cowan responded, “You heard the superintendent say he’s committed to Dallas ISD.  It’s up to the board to determine if we’re committed to him and his efforts.”

Two days before trustees meet to discuss the Coggins report, the board will hold a meeting where public comments will be allowed.  Critics of Miles are expected to show up to try to persuade board members that it’s time for him to go.
