Section 2. For such additional new units there is appropriated to the State Board of Education the sum of twenty-five thousand dollars ($25,000.00) for the year ending June 30, 1954 and a further sum of twenty-five thousand dollars ($25,000.00) for the year ending June 30, 1955.

Section 3. The State Board of Education shall determine the amounts which are to be allotted to each qualifying school district, taking into consideration the funds appropriated in Section 2 and the actual number of additional units to be provided for, and shall notify the State Auditor of Accounts who shall then cause such amounts to be included with the funds due according to Section 1 of this Article to the district.

Section 4. This is a supplementary appropriation and the funds appropriated shall be paid out of the general fund of the State Treasury not otherwise appropriated.
