Dallas School Board Considers Superintendent's Future


Protesters outside the Dallas School District Administration building called on the school board to fire Miles.

The Board went behind closed doors at 5:42 this evening to hear from the Superintendent for the first time after an independent investigation found he violated district policy in an effort to discredit board members in the media.

Miles has said he wants to renew a good relationship with the Board.

Trustees could decide tonight whether to fire Miles, discipline him, or move on.

Board President Eric Cowan has given no indication what the Board might do. He did say he expected the closed session to last two to three hours.

Former KERA reporter BJ Austin spent more than 25 years in broadcast journalism, anchoring and reporting in Atlanta, New York, New Orleans and Dallas. Along the way, she covered Atlanta City Hall, the Georgia Legislature and the corruption trials of Louisiana Gov. Edwin Edwards.
