A former U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Texas has taken over the investigation of Dallas Independent School District Superintendent Mike Miles. DISD school board trustees made the decision to hire Paul Coggins.
According to the school’s website, nearly 3 of 4 students have limited English proficiency and as many as 97 percent are considered economically disadvantaged.
DISD’s choice is an educator from Colorado Springs with an impressive resume.
DISD faces a projected budget deficit of $38 million, and 300 more elementary teaching jobs may be cut.
The Dallas School District is getting a dismal look at its financial future, and parents and teachers aren’t happy.
Thirty-three Dallas ISD schools are now rated “academically unacceptable,” which is the lowest rating on the state’s 4-step scale.
