    The superintendent of the Dallas Independent School District has received a two-year contract extension but no raise. Trustees approved the deal with Mike Miles Tuesday morning.

    "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.
