Eric Cowan, president of the Board of Trustees of the Dallas Independent School District, released the following statement in response to Mike Miles resigning as Dallas ISD superintendent:
“Over the past three years, Dallas ISD has taken bold steps with one common goal: to improve the quality of education we provide to the students of Dallas ISD. It hasn’t always been easy, and it hasn’t always been comfortable, but through it all, Superintendent Miles stayed the course and continued to push for transformation.
The Board is committed to working together to quickly find new, strong leadership for our school district, and we are dedicated to keeping the momentum going on the many initiatives begun by Superintendent Miles and his team. We are working to schedule a meeting at 5:30 p.m. Friday to discuss next steps.
I appreciate Superintendent Miles’ investment in and service to Dallas ISD, and I wish him the best of luck in his next endeavor.”
In addition to the written statement, Cowan answered questions from The Hub about Miles’ resignation and how the board plans to move forward. The video from the interview is viewable above.
