  Section 1. Paragraph c of subdivision 1 of section 3602 of the  educa-

taxable  real  property  within  such  district  as  it appears upon the
assessment roll of the town, city, village,  or  county  in  which  such
property is located, for the calendar year two years prior to the calen-
dar year in which the base year commenced, after revision as provided by
law, and dividing it by the state equalization rate as determined by the
state board of [equalization and assessment] REAL PROPERTY TAX SERVICES,

four hundred eighty-five of the real property tax law. "Selected  actual
valuation"  shall mean the lesser of actual valuation calculated for aid
payable in the current year or the two-year average of the actual  valu-
