(a) Before issuing any notes hereunder, the board of education by which such notes are proposed to be issued shall cause an application for approval of such issuance to be filed with the State Superintendent of Education. Such application shall be in such form and shall contain such information as the State Superintendent of Education may prescribe, and he may require such further information as may be necessary relating to the proposed notes or other financial or educational matters under the control of such board of education. He shall not approve the issue of any notes hereunder which would jeopardize the Minimum State Program of education as prescribed by law and in accordance with the rules and regulations of the State Board of Education. He shall not approve the issue of any notes hereunder when the principal of or the interest on any other notes or any other warrants constituting a preferred claim against the tax proceeds to be pledged for payment of the proposed notes and warrants is overdue and unpaid, except to refund the same. The written approval of the State Superintendent of Education of the amount and general purpose of the notes shall be a sufficient approval, but he may at his discretion approve any of the terms and provisions of the notes which in such event shall not be issued otherwise.
(b) The written approval of the State Superintendent of Education of the issue of any notes hereunder shall be a conclusive determination that all necessary evidence has been presented to him, and a conclusive determination in favor of the validity of such notes that all of the requirements of this article have been complied with. The State Superintendent of Education may also determine conclusively for all purposes relating to the validity of any notes issued hereunder whether any other notes or warrants constitute a preferred claim against the tax proceeds out of which the proposed notes are payable. In all matters connected with his approval of notes, the State Superintendent of Education shall comply with any regulations or instructions of the State Board of Education, but his failure to do so shall not affect the validity of the notes approved by him.
