A petition protesting against the proposed dedication or conveyance signed by at least 10 percent of the qualified electors of the district, as shown by the affidavit of one of the petitioners, may be filed with the governing board at the meeting held at the time and place fixed in the resolution. If a protest is filed, the governing board shall, before taking any further action on the proposed dedication or conveyance, submit the question of whether the proposed dedication or conveyance should be made, to the superintendent of schools of the county having jurisdiction over the district, whose decision is final. If the superintendent approves the proposed dedication or conveyance, the board may proceed as provided in Section 17559. If the superintendent of schools does not approve the proposed dedication or conveyance, no further proceedings shall be had thereon.
