The governing board of any school district or community college district may petition the board of supervisors to cancel the remaining authorization of that district to issue and sell bonds resulting from any particular school bond election after the sale of at least 90 percent of the bonds authorized at the election if the amount of the remaining authorization is not more than twenty-five thousand dollars ($25,000) and in the opinion of the governing board the sale of the remaining bonds would not be economically justified.

Upon such order the district shall have the authority to issue the bonds pursuant to all of the terms and limitations of the original authorization, including the purposes for which such bonds may be issued, the maximum interest rate, and the maximum term to maturity, provided that the aggregate amount of bonds issued pursuant to such authorization does not exceed the amount originally authorized by the voters.
