Long Island school districts’ financial status

Eight districts in Nassau and Suffolk tagged as in fiscal trouble

Eight of the 26 school districts that New York State considers fiscally stressed are on Long Island. That is double the number from last year but a decrease from two years ago, when 18 of 59 stressed school districts in New York State were on Long Island.

The mid-sized Wyandanch district and tiny New Suffolk show signs of "significant stress," according to New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli. Six other school districts received a less severe ratings of "susceptible to fiscal stress."

Here are the details for all Long Island districts, with the current designation and score and last year's score for comparison. 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.
