    The Dallas school district's embattled superintendent could learn on Monday what, if any, punishment he will face as a result of an investigation.

    Dallas Independent School District trustees had to decide during Thursday's school board meeting whether or not to accept the findings of a special investigation of his actions.

    The investigation cleared Miles of the allegations involving the contract and alleged bullying of employees. However, the report also found that Miles had violated both the terms of his contract and district policy.

    On Monday, Miles will have his first evaluation and learn what action, if any, the board will take.

    Punishment could range from termination to no action. DISD officials hinted that Miles could get clauses added to his contract that would prevent him from making the same mistakes.

    The special investigation found that Miles violated district policy by badmouthing members of the board. The investigation also noted that Miles violated district policy by using his influence to sway the investigation.

    The violations aren't against the law.

    The report also said that Miles did not bully or retaliate against employees and cleared him of allegations of unprofessional conduct.
