The Board of Educational Lands and Funds shall proceed to investigate the facts involved in such appeal and, if the contention of the school board or learning community coordinating council is correct, make the proper reappraisement. The value calculation in this subsection shall be used by the Commissioner of Education for making distributions in each school fiscal year.
