The Dallas school board talked for four hours Thursday night about the future of superintendent Mike Miles, but came to no decision. Miles told board members he’s ready to “reset” his relationship with them and focus on educating children.

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.

The demand comes just hours before tonight’s school board meeting, where Mike Miles will be on the hot seat. He'll be responding publicly for the first time to an investigation that found he interfered with an investigation into a district contract, and helped write a letter that criticized board members.
