Long Island school districts' financial status

Four of the 26 school districts that New York State considers fiscally stressed are on Long Island, according to the state comptroller.

Four of the 26 school districts that New York State considers fiscally stressed are on Long Island. That is a decrease from last year, when 18 of 59 stressed school districts in New York State were on Long Island. The Eastport-South Manor district has the highest stress score on the Island, 46.7 percent, and was considered under "moderate" fiscal stress. Three other districts, Long Beach, North Bellmore and Wyandanch, were listed as "susceptible" to fiscal stress, according to New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli. Last year, Hempstead had the highest stress score, 85 percent, but this year the district's score is 21.7 percent.

Here are the details for all Long Island districts, with the current designation and three years' worth of scores presented. Having no designation is a sign of fiscal health. The percentage scores are based on financial indicators that include year-end fund balance, short-term borrowing and patterns of operating deficits. The higher the score, the more stress.
