Following adoption of the state budget last week, two Cayuga County districts, including the county's largest, will be required to submit building-by-building spending data to the state beginning in the 2018-19 school year.
Auburn and Union Springs school districts will be subject to the mandate in its first year, according to the state Division of Budget. In the 2018-19 school year, the reporting requirement applies to districts with four or more schools with state aid accounting for more than 50 percent of their revenue.
Auburn has five elementary schools, a junior high school and a high school. Union Springs has three buildings — an elementary school, junior high and high school — and is in the process of closing one of its elementary schools. But since the state is using a prior year's data, it shows Union Springs as having four buildings.
