Chief of Staff Alan King resigns from district

Dallas Independent School District Superintendent Mike Miles said today that Chief of Staff Alan King has submitted his resignation effective tomorrow. King served as Interim Superintendent for a year after being named Chief Financial Officer in January 2011. “Alan King has served the district ably and with integrity in every capacity and I wish him well,” said Miles. “During our discussion today, Alan told me that when he accepted the position of Chief of Staff, he felt it would be temporary until our new administrative team was in place. Now that the first 100 days has been completed and a new administrative team is solidly in place, he felt as if he had accomplished his goal of shepherding the transition.” “It has been an honor for me to serve this school district and I wish all of the best to the elected trustees, Superintendent Miles, the new administration as well as the staff of the Dallas Independent School District,” said King. “I am proud of the continued progress made by the nearly 20,000 dedicated employees in the district.” Miles noted that King leaves the district in a stronger financial position than when he started. The district’s fund balance is projected to be approximately $189 million at the end of the 2011-12 school year. Miles said that a strong team remains in place that will be able to keep the district’s financial operations on solid footing. “Please join me in thanking Mr. King for his service to the

students, parents, staff and taxpayers of the Dallas Independent School District,” said Miles.
