(2) Allowable costs. A school district shall use the apportionment received under this subdivision for the assignment of additional teach

in sufficient numbers to reduce the class size in grades one, two and three to a maximum class size of twenty-four pupils each. In the event that school district cannot, in particular school buildings, meet the class size requirements due to severe physical plant limitations, where implementation of such class size would result in multiple classes of fewer than eighteen pupils, a teacher assistant may be provided to increase the adult to pupil ratio in grades one, two and three in lieu of the assignment of additional teachers.

(3) After meeting the requirements of subparagraph two of this paragraph, a school district may use such remaining apportionment for

School districts shall be eligible for an additional apportionment computed as follows: fifty dollars multiplied by the supplemental support apportionment aid ratio plus twenty-two dollars and fifty cents which sum shall be multiplied by the total aidable pupil units that would be used to compute general operating aid under subdivision twelve of this section minus the early grade intervention apportionment if any. The supplemental support apportionment aid ratio shall be computed by subtracting from one the product obtained by multiplying sixty-four percent by the combined wealth ratio. This aid ratio shall be expressed as a decimal to three places without rounding but shall not be less than zero. For the school year nineteen hundred eighty-five--eighty-six, a city school district in a city having a population in excess of one million shall use not less than thirtyfive percent of the monies apportioned to it under this subdivision for the purposes of reducing class size in grades one, two and three and for operating programs prusuantt to subdivision twenty-five of this section.
