Just when you thought the budget wars were over in San Diego Unified: Chief Financial Officer James Masias said Tuesday night that the school district faces at least an $84 million shortfall at the beginning of the 2010-2011 school year because it balanced this year’s budget with more than $100 million in one-time fixes, such as tapping federal stimulus money for students with disabilities.

This is all very, very preliminary — Masias noted that that number does not include the increasing costs of employee salaries or utilities. But it is clear that there is more pain to come.
