As promised, I was at the San Diego Unified School District office at 8 a.m. today, the start of the legally mandated public viewing period for the district’s proposed budget. So was the budget.

While waiting for the magic hour, I stood next to a woman holding the first official copies of the budget. The document is scheduled be voted on at Tuesday’s meeting.

However, the secretary at the district’s board-services offices said the budget won’t be released to the public quite yet — a district policy requires that school board members be allowed to view all exhibits beforehand. That policy, unlike the one requiring all documents to be released to the public a week before the meeting, seems to be enforced.

A spokesman for the district promised to send over the document at 9:30 a.m., and I’ll post it as soon as it’s here.
