New York state Comptroller Alan G. Hevesi has assigned auditors to review the finances of four Long Island school districts, where prosecutors recently arrested officials from two districts and charged them with stealing public funds.

Mr. Hevesi said his office would randomly review the independent audits submitted by other districts in the state to “determine if they are conducted properly.”

He added that his investigations unit would assist local prosecutors in tracking misuse of school money.

In addition to the new activities, Mr. Hevesi asked state officials to appropriate $5.4 million a year to hire enough auditors to review the accounts of every district in the state once every five years.
