sixty and four hundred sixty-four of this chapter and such other sections of law as the school authorities designate by resolution to be included in the total assessed valuation. On or before the first day of October in each year, the district superintendent shall transmit to the commissioner of education and to the state board, in the form prescribed by it, a statement for the current fiscal year showing the taxable assessed' valuation of real property of each city and town within the school district, the assessed valuation of such real property upon which the school tax has actually been levied, the state equalization rate
equalization rate used to determine the apportiondent of taxes, the full valuation of real property of each part of a city or town included in such school district, and a list of the partial exemptions which the school authorities have by resolution adopted pursuant to this section, elected to include in the taxable assessed valuation of real property:
(b) The state equalization rate to be furnished by the state board shall be the rate established by the board for the assessment roll on which school taxes are to be levied. When no state equalization rate has been established for such roll, the rate to be furnished shall be the rate established for the assessment roll immediately preceding the roll on which taxes are to be levied provided, however, that where a special equalization rate has been determined' as provided in subdivision two of this section, that special equalization rate shall be furnished to the district superintendent for the purpose of equalization pursuant to this section. In all cases in any given 'school district the state equalizat ion rates or special equalization rates to be furnished by the state board for the apportionment of taxes shall have the same full value standard. Such district superintendent shall also determine what proportion of any tax to be levied in such school district for school purposes during the current school year shall be levied upon each part of a city or town included in such school district by dividing the sum of the full valuation of real property in such part of a city or town by the total of all such full valuations of real property in such school district. Such proportions shall be expressed in the nearest exact ten thousandths and the school authorities of such school district shall levy such a proportion of any tax to be raised in the school district during the current school year upon each part of a city or town included in such school district as shall have been determined by the district superintendent. A new proportion shall be determined for each school year thereafter by the district superintendent in accordance with the provisions of this section by the use of the latest state equalization rates. In any such school district that is not within the jurisdiction of a district superintendent of schools, the duties which would otherwise be performed by the district superintendent under the provisions of this section, shall be performed by the school authorities of such district.
§ 4. Paragraph (a) of subdivision 3 of section 1314 of the real property tax law, as added by chapter 280 of the laws of 1985, is amended to read as follows:
(a) Upon his own motion or, prior to the [expiration of the fiscal year] statutory date for the levy of school district taxes on the next subsequent assessment roll, at the request of a person liable to pay taxes upon real property in the school district, a district superintendent who failed to use one or more state equalization rates furnished pursuant to this section, or who made a mathematical error in determining full value or in apportioning the tax on the basis of full value, shall redetermine the full valuation of the real property of each part of a city or town within the school district and the proportion of the tax which should have been levied in each city or town or part thereof based upon the corrected full valuation. If such redetermination cannot be made prior to the extension of taxes for that year, the district superintendent shall cause the school district tax levy for the following year to be adjusted to account for the improper apportionment which resulted from his error, upon notice to the state board and the commissioner of education; provided, however, that the school authorities by resolution may elect to adjust the tax levy in the current year notwithstanding a redetermination of full valuation after the extension of taxes for the current year.

current than the full value standard of the equalization rates furnished by the state board pursuant to section thirteen hundred fourteen of this article. In making its determination, the state board may rely on the evidence and information available in its offices, or that obtained from the assessors or other local assessment officials, from physical inspections of parcels in each city and town, or from any other method that it deems appropriate.
(a) Where it is determined that the criteria for certification are satisfied, the state board shall notify the school authorities of
such determination no later than fifteen days prior to the last day provided by law for the levy of taxes. The state board shall identify to the school district the cities and towns deemed to have completed a revaluation in the same year where the results of that revaluation have been entered on assessment rolls each of which have the same valuation date which is more current than the full value standard of the equalization rates furnished by the state board pursuant to section thirteen hundred fourteen of this article and which continue to use the same uniform percentage of value.
(b) Where it is determined that the criteria for certification are not satisfied, the state board shall notify the school authorities of
such determination no later than fifteen days prior to the last day provided by law for the levy of taxes. Thereafter, school district taxes shall be apportioned and levied as provided by section thirteen hundred fourteen of this article.

(b) For the cities and towns which the state board has identified as provided by paragraph (a) of subdivision two of this section, the amount
school tax to be raised in aggregate from each part of such city or town is the sum of the amounts determined for each such city and town in accordance with paragraph (a) of this subdivision* This aggregate amount of school tax shall be apportioned to each such city or town in proportion to the taxable assessed valuation of real property in such city or town. Taxable assessed valuation means taxable assessed valuation defined in section thirteen hundred fourteen of this article.
