  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  and
paragraph c as added by section 12 of part CCC of chapter 59 of the laws
of 2018, 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  NINETEEN--TWO  THOUSAND  TWENTY  school  year  and thereafter,

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.
