reduced through aid deductions totaling such excess payments, by deduct-
ing  one-third  of  such  excess  payments from the payments due to such
school district and payable in the month of June in the years 2011, 2012
and 2013; provided, however, there shall be no interest penalty assessed
against such district or collected by the state; and provided,  further,
