(1) It has obtained an emergency apportionment loan from the State of California, but the Superintendent has determined that a state administrator is no longer necessary, and has restored, before the effective date of this section, the legal rights, duties, and powers of the governing board of the school district pursuant to Section 41326.
(2) It has a pupil population 70 percent of which is from either a "lower income household" or "very low income household" as those terms are defined in Sections 50079.5 and 50105, respectively, of the Health and Safety Code.
(b) For purposes of this section, for any school district that meets the description specified in paragraph (1) of subdivision (a), consent to an action to reorganize the boundaries of the school district shall no longer be required when 10 years have elapsed from the date of final payment by the school district of the emergency loan to the State of California.
