             (2)      The maximum tax levy on agricultural property for such school district shall be three dollars and three cents per thousand dollars of taxable valuation. If the district's levies are less than the maximum levies as stated in this section, the levies shall maintain the same proportion to each other as represented in the mathematical relationship at the maximum levies;
             (3)      The maximum tax levy for an owner-occupied single-family dwelling as defined in § 10- 13-40, for such school district may not exceed four dollars and seventy-six cents per thousand dollars of taxable valuation.

These valuations shall be used for all school funding purposes. If the district has imposed an excess levy pursuant to § 10-12-43, the levies shall maintain the same proportion to each other as represented in the mathematical relationship at the maximum levies in this section.
