26 school districts in New York have been designated as "fiscally stressed" under State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli's Fiscal Stress Monitoring System.

That's a decrease from last year, when 59 districts were listed in stress.

“While it is welcome news that so few school districts across the state have been classified as in fiscal stress, school officials should remain vigilant and carefully consider how their budgeting decisions will affect their long-term fiscal condition and local taxpayers," DiNapoli said.

The only local school districts to make the list were the New Hartford and DeRuyter Central School Districts, which we both listed as "susceptible" to fiscal stress.

This is the fifth year DiNapoli's office has assessed levels of fiscal stress in school districts across the state.
