We’ve been digging into San Diego Unified’s finances for the last several months and, in the middle of it all, district leaders issued a stark warning that they could be headed for insolvency.

Since then, it’s been a mad rush to figure out what it all means and how we ended up here. And, concurrently, the district has begun taking the first steps towards closing schools, an always-heated proposition.

We’ve received an overwhelming amount of response and questions in the wake of that reporting.

So it’s time to bring back an old VOSD favorite: The People’s Reporter. Here’s the deal: You’re our boss.

All day Wednesday, send myself and Will Carless your tips, questions, assignments or oddities and we’ll do our best to track down answers the same day. If it’s a longer assignment, we’ll try to get to the bottom of it and report back as soon as we can.

We’ll be spending Wednesday on this, but I wanted to throw it open now for questions, especially since we’re meeting this afternoon with the district’s chief financial officer and the district’s planning further conversation on insolvency during the school board meeting on Tuesday.

So, come on. Be our boss.

Here’s how you get us: andrew.donohue@voiceofsandiego.org or will.carless@voiceofsandiego.org. Call us at 619.325.0525. And get us on Twitter:
