  Section 1. Subdivision 9 of section 3602  of  the  education  law,  as
amended  by  section  9  of part A of chapter 57 of the laws of 2013, is
amended to read as follows:
  9. Aid for conversion to full day kindergarten. School  districts  may
make  available  full day kindergarten programs for all children wishing
to attend such programs.
  a. For aid payable in the [two thousand seven--two thousand eight] TWO
THOUSAND SEVENTEEN--TWO THOUSAND EIGHTEEN school  year  and  thereafter,
school  districts  which  provided any half-day kindergarten programs or
had no kindergarten programs in the [nineteen hundred  ninety-six--nine-
ty-seven]  TWO THOUSAND SIXTEEN--TWO THOUSAND SEVENTEEN school year [and
in the base year], and which have not received an apportionment pursuant

PROVIDING FULL DAY KINDERGARTEN PROGRAMS FOR ALL CHILDREN  WHO  WISH  TO
ATTEND SUCH PROGRAMS. THE AID IN THE FIRST YEAR OF FULL DAY KINDERGARTEN
TRANSITION IS equal to the product of the district's selected foundation

by the positive difference resulting  when  the  full  day  kindergarten
enrollment  of  children  attending programs in the district in the base
year is subtracted from such enrollment in the current year. THE REMAIN-
ING TRANSITION AID SHALL BE APPORTIONED AS FOLLOWS:
  I. AID IN YEAR TWO SHALL EQUAL EIGHTY PERCENT OF THE AID  RECEIVED  BY
THE DISTRICT IN YEAR ONE.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
