Tiffany Greenwaldt-Simon reports for Columbia-Greene Media that New York Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli’s Fiscal Stress Monitoring System has found the Ichabod Crane Central School District is susceptible to fiscal stress. Ichabod Crane Superintendent Marie Digirolamo disagreed with the rating, saying it was the first year they have received any rating other than “no designation." She said, “Ichabod Crane Central School District will continue its long-standing practice of fiscally responsible and transparent budgeting and accounting to meet the educational needs of our students and community.” Digirolamo said the district is waiting on $4 million outstanding federal and state grant reimbursements and state aid, which caused the rating. Sixteen schools in the state were found to be under some level of fiscal stress, with Ichabod Crane the only local school on the list. Read more about this story at HudsonValley360.com.
