A marathon meeting Monday night ended with the Dallas Independent School District board voting to extend Superintendent Mike Miles' contract.
The more than 10-hour closed-door meeting ended with a 7-2 vote to extend Miles' contract two years without a raise. He'll also get eight consulting days a year.
"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," said Miguel Solis, the DISD school board president. "It's also a back and forth when it comes to negotiations, we knew that coming in, but ultimately, at the end of the day, the trustees have shown a vote of confidence in the superintendent."
Miles was asking for both an extension and a raise, but said he's looking forward to continuing his work in the district.
"I'm pleased that we're headed towards Destination 2020 but we're going to continue to work for the kids of [the] Dallas ISD," Miles said. "I think that's very supportive of the reforms and transformation we've been undergoing for the last two years."
Miles earns about $300,000 annually. His three-year contract was set to expire June 30, 2015.
The Dallas ISD has more than 157,000 students and is the largest school district in North Texas.
