to pay in full the amount each school district is determined to be eligible to receive
for the school year, the state board shall prorate the amount appropriated among all
school districts which are eligible to receive state aid under the provisions of this
act in proportion to the amount each school district is determined to be eligible
(c) The state board shall prescribe all forms necessary for reporting under this act.
