Upon receipt of the petition, the county superintendent of schools shall transmit a copy of the petition to the board of governors.
The county superintendent of schools, within 30 days after the petition for reorganization is filed, shall examine the petition and, if he or she finds it to be sufficient and signed as required by law, shall transmit the petition simultaneously to the county committee, the governing board of each affected district, and the board of governors.
Notwithstanding any provision of this article to the contrary, if the transfer involves a minor change in district boundaries, defined as a transfer of territory involving less than 5 percent of the adult population of the district from which the transfer is being made, the petition may be transmitted directly to the county board of supervisors by the county superintendent of schools, without submission to the county committee on school district organization. The procedure specified in this paragraph may not be utilized more than once every five years.
