Inside Track February 2011 from Dallas Independent School Dist on Vimeo.

What you see above is a video the Dallas Independent School District just posted to Vimeo in which district spokesman Jon Dahlander asks Michael Hinojosa to discuss the "staggering" worst-case scenario outlined at the board meeting two weeks ago. I like to think of this as "new reality programming."

Speaking of: After the jump is a second video posted by the district within the last hour -- the legislative update offered during that same briefing, during which the super outlined the "two big things" that caused "the state's structural deficit" leading to the likelihood that the district will need to cut somewhere around $260 million from its budget.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
