DALLAS (AP) The embattled Dallas schools superintendent has been cleared by an investigation of wrongdoing in the handling of a contract.
But the investigation found Mike Miles violated district policy by talking to witnesses in the process.
The Dallas Morning News obtained a copy of the report of an investigation by Paul Coggins, a former U.S. attorney hired by the Dallas Independent School District. Trustees hired Coggins to investigate allegations regarding a service contract for parent education services.
Coggins' investigation found that Miles talked to two witnesses during an initial probe, which violates district policy.
Miles was also heavily involved in writing a district official's resignation letter. The letter ripped trustees and praised Miles.
