DALLAS (AP) – Superintendent Mike Miles left his post on Thursday after three tumultuous years.

He will return to Colorado and receive $275,000 from the board.

DISD trustees voted Friday to pay Mike Miles in a separation deal. Board members decided to bring back ex-Superintendent Michael Hinojosa at $25,000 per month, as interim superintendent.

Miles on Tuesday announced his resignation after nearly three years at DISD, where he made about $300,000 annually. He had two years left on his contract. Miles formerly worked for the Harrison School District in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and said he wanted to rejoin his family.

Hinojosa was superintendent of DISD for six years before leaving in 2011 and working for the Cobb County School District near Atlanta. He resigned in 2014 and left Georgia, returning to Dallas and working as an educational consultant.
