DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Protestors lined up with at DISD headquarters armed with signs and chanting that it’s time for Superintendent Mike Miles to go.

School board trustees are considering the possibility of disciplining Miles, after an investigation revealed he violated district policy. On Thursday night’s board meeting agenda: Consider possible actions regarding the employment relationship and contract with Mike Miles.

Today, the leaders of two of DISD’s largest teacher associations stood together to urge board members to fire Miles.

“By any measure, Superintendent Miles has let down our students, parents, teachers and the Dallas community,” said Rena Honea, President of Alliance AFT.

Teachers have battled with Miles over job evaluations and classroom performance reviews.

Southern Dallas community groups have also fought against the superintendent’s removal of principals in certain South Dallas schools.

However, Miles supporter, LULAC leader Rene Martinez says Miles’ crime does not meet the level of punishment teachers and others are demanding.

“As a parent, grandparent, stakeholder, I think mike miles is pushing for reform that’s going to be helping our kids. We’re losing sight,” said Martinez.

At least five board members must vote to remove Miles from his job, but sources tell CBS 11 only three board members want to see him go.
