DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The DISD Board of Trustees voted early Tuesday morning to give Superintendent Mike Miles a two-year extension.

The 7-2 decision came just after 4 a.m. following a 10-hour meeting. Superintendent Miles’ contract was set to expire at the end of next summer.

The board also determined that Miles will not receive a raise, but he will be allowed to consult eight days a year — something Miles wanted to return to doing. The money earned consulting will be used to help the school district.

“I think there’s always a concern that there might be too much time spent doing it,” said Miles, “and I think anybody who knows my work in the last two years knows that I spent a whole bunch of time out of the office working for DISD.”

In his two years with the district, Miles has come under fire after an internal investigation found he had violated school district policy. But Board of Trustees President Miguel Solis says the vote is a sign that trustees still have faith in Miles.

“I think, though, it warranted a long discussion,” said Solis. “We needed to have a discussion about the superintendent’s achievement to date and also the vision that we have for the future of this school system.”

Superintendent Miles didn’t expect the meeting to last well into the early morning hours but says he’s pleased to have the opportunity to continue working to improve the district.
