DiNapoli: 82 School Districts in Fiscal Stress

Eighty-two school districts have been designated as fiscally stressed under New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli’s Fiscal Stress Monitoring System. This is the third year DiNapoli’s office has assessed and scored the financial stability of school districts. The latest round of scoring designated eight school districts in “significant fiscal stress,” 24 in “moderate fiscal stress” and 50 as “susceptible to fiscal stress.”  Scio School in Allegany County was listed as having moderate stress.  Schools susceptible to fiscal stress included Fillmore Central in Allegany County and in Steuben County, Jasper-Troupsburg and Campbell-Savona.
