§ 212. Apportionment by school commissioners. The school commissioners annually on the third Tuesday of March, at the county seat, shall apportion and divide the free school fund and other school moneys as follows:
1. They shall set apart to each city, village and district entitled thereto the several supervision and district quotas.
2. To every district which did not participate in the apportionment of the preceding year, and which the superintendent shall have excused, such equitable sum as he shall have allowed to it.
3. The sum to which a county is entitled shall be apportioned among the districts and parts of districts therein, according to a ratio to be ascertained by dividing such sum by the aggregate number of days attendance in such districts and parts of districts.
The aggregate days attendance must be ascertained by adding together the whole number of days attendance of resident pupils of school age, and also of resident children over four years of age who shall have attended any free kindergarten legally estab lished in the district.
4. All sums in the county treasury to which the county or a city, town, village or district therein is entitled by gift, grant, devise or otherwise, for use in the payment of teachers' wages, shall be included in the apportionment. If such moneys belong to a county, they shall be added to the amount apportioned to the county by the superintendent. If they belong to any particular district, they shall be set apart and credited to it. If they belong to a town, they shall be added to the sum otherwise apportioned to the town, and the whole sum shall be apportioned
to the several districts and parts of districts therein, according
to a ratio based on the aggregate attendance.
