DISD Board Voting On Miles Thursday

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - Dallas ISD Superintendent finalist Mike Miles will face a final board vote Thursday evening.  With board approval, Miles will become the new Superintendent of Schools for the second largest school system in Texas.  His salary, however, may top all other Texas school leaders' compensation.

According to two sources connected to contract negotiations, Miles' salary and benefits offer will hover around $350,000.  The highest paid Superintendent in Texas is Thomas "Butch" Carroll, of the Beaumont ISD.  His salary is $348,000.

Miles leads the Harrison School District of Colorado Springs, Colorado.  He was named finalist for the Dallas ISD job last month.

Late Wednesday, Miles boarded a flight for Dallas.  He declined comment on the contract negotiations.

According to sources, Miles' DISD contract would include performance incentives that offer payments based on student outcomes,  graduation rates and state achievement ratings.  The Dallas Board of Education meets at 6pm Thursday.
