School Districts in Stress: Fiscal Years Ending 2016

The Fiscal Stress Monitoring System and resulting fiscal stress designations rely on data (as of 12/30/2016) from ST-3 reports submitted by school districts to the State Education Department.

This list (sorted in order of fiscal stress score) reflects a fiscal year end date of June 30, 2016.

School district information for the fiscally dependent districts (Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse and Yonkers) will be incorporated into the scoring of their respective cities.
