On the heels of the $11.2 million audit scandal at the Roslyn, N.Y., school district that resulted in the convictions of the superintendent and several associates, New York State Comptroller Alan Hevesi has singled out a number of school districts in Westchester and Rockland Counties for audits.
First up, the Lakeland School District -- about 50 miles north of New York City -- which is undergoing an audit following a $3 million shortfall in its budget. The district has subsequently installed a new accounting system and reassigned several personnel.

Other Westchester/Rockland districts on the comptroller's audit docket include the cities of Yonkers and Mount Vernon, as well as East Ramapo.

Hevesi's office is planning to audit all school districts in New York State over the next five years.
