DALLAS (CBS 11 NEWS) – Dallas Independent School District Superintendent Mike Miles will keep his job for now.
A motion by the school board to terminate the much-maligned superintendent failed, by a vote of 5 to 3, Monday night.
Trustee Carla Ranger called for the motion to fire Miles. She said firing Miles “would be good for the district.”
Along with Ranger, trustees Lew Blackburn and Bernadette Nutall also voted to fire the superintendent.
An outside investigation revealed Miles violated policy when he interfered with an investigation. The investigation also found Miles violated his employment contract with his role in a letter defaming the school board.
While not defending what Miles did, for the majority of trustees the superintendent’s actions do not justify him being fired.
“I don’t think the violations here rise to the level of termination,” explained Trustee Dan Micciche.
After the motion to terminate Miles failed, the board went into closed session to discuss other options to discipline Miles.
