AN ACT to amend the education law, in relation to the calculation of the
  "pupil wealth ratio" for school aid purposes

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1. Paragraphs a and b of subdivision 3 of section 3602 of the
education law, as amended by section 13 of part B of chapter 57  of  the
laws of 2008, are amended to read as follows:
  a.  (1)  "Pupil  wealth ratio" shall mean the number computed to three
decimals without rounding obtained when actual  valuation  of  a  school
district  divided by, WHEN APPLICABLE, the SUM OF THE total wealth pupil
units AND, IF THE DISTRICT'S NUMBER OF  RESIDENT  STUDENTS  ENROLLED  IN
NON-PUBLIC  SCHOOL  IS  MORE  THAN TWICE THE NUMBER OF RESIDENT STUDENTS
ENROLLED IN PUBLIC SCHOOL AND IF THE PUBLIC SCHOOL  ENROLLMENT  IS  OVER
ONE  THOUSAND,  TWENTY-FIVE PER CENTUM OF THE RESIDENT STUDENTS ENROLLED
IN NON-PUBLIC SCHOOL OF THE DISTRICT, is divided by the statewide  aver-
age  actual  valuation  per  total  wealth pupil unit as computed by the
commissioner in accordance with the provisions  of  this  section.  Such
statewide  average actual valuation per total wealth pupil unit shall be
established each year by the commissioner using the latest  single  year
actual  valuation  computed under paragraph c of subdivision one of this
section. Such statewide average  shall  be  transmitted  to  the  school
districts.  Such  statewide  average  shall  be  rounded  to the nearest
hundredth and shall include the actual valuation and total wealth  pupil
units  of all school districts eligible for aid pursuant to this section
except central high school districts. For the  purposes  of  calculating
such statewide average the data for the city school district of the city
of New York shall be citywide data.
  (2)  "Pupil  wealth  ratio  for  total  foundation aid" shall mean the
number computed to three decimals without  rounding  obtained  when  the
selected actual valuation of a school district divided by, WHEN APPLICA-
