Dallas school board members voted accept the findings of an internal audit that is critical of Superintendent Mike Miles. The final version of the audit is a toned-down version of the original, which accused Miles of abusing his power.
The Dallas Independent School District trustees voted 8-1 to approve an internal audit into expenses and the superintendent's hiring practices.
The final audit was a toned-down version of the original 15-page district audit. It questioned the establishment of administrative positions that Superintendent Mike Miles created without school board approval, relocation reimbursements and a bogus relocation reimbursement report.
The audit also found that some administrative staff were being paid without clocking in, as other employees are mandated.
"I do believe that what was done was unethical and it was certainly out of line with our procedures," said Trustee Carla Ranger, the lone dissenting vote.
Miles responded at Thursday night's board meeting, telling trustees that no laws or policies were broken.
