The county clerk shall immediately notify the secretary of each Class II, III, IV, or V district affected of the action taken by the Class I or II district, and such secretary shall within ten days certify to the county clerk that the school board of the Class II, III, IV, or V district has, by a majority vote, officially approved the proposal as provided in section 79-452. The county clerk shall issue an order effecting the changes in school district boundaries in accordance with the proposal provided in section 79-452. He or she shall also file certificates with the county assessor, county treasurer, and State Committee for the Reorganization of School Districts showing the changes. An appeal may be taken from such order within twenty days after the rendition of the order in the same manner as appeals are taken from the action of the county board in allowing or disallowing claims against the county.
