There's every chance today's meeting of the Dallas Independent School District's board of trustees could last till the wee small hours of tomorrow morning. Because in addition to all the previously mentioned public hearings and hot-button items scheduled for today -- everything from school consolidations to longer workday hours for teachers to the official release of the TEA's performance report as required by state law -- there's been a last-minute addition to the to-do list.

That called board meeting's scheduled to go down at 4; we'll watch because you won't. I asked DISD spokesman Jon Dahlander if he could pass along any advance materials prepped for today's meeting; he says there's no draft yet and that it may be handed out at today's last-minute meeting. He does note, however, that the board will receive a Skyped presentation from a rep from PROACT, the search firm hired to find a super super.
