    The DISD board discussed, but didn't decide the fate of Superintendent Mike Miles. (Published Friday, Sep 20, 2013)

    After more than four hours in executive session, the Dallas school district board took no action against embattled Superintendent Mike Miles. But that doesn't mean the board is finished with Miles.

    A special investigation into Miles' actions found that the superintendent 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.

    Board members will have to decide if the violations will cost Miles his job, if he will be reprimanded or even let off free and clear.

    After the closed door session, Dallas Independent School District board members asked the special investigator, Paul Coggins, about the findings.

    While the investigator did find that Miles violated his contract and ISD policy, the investigation also said Miles was cleared of allegations of bullying employees and unprofessional conduct. Miles was also cleared of retaliating against a district employee.

    Miles did speak to the board but stopped short of apologizing. He did say that he wishes he had a better relationship with board members.

    Board members will meet again to decide on a possible punishment for Miles.
