(1) If, by the end of the fifth school year following the school district's classification of fiscal distress status, the school district in fiscal distress has not corrected all issues that caused the classification of fiscal distress, the state board, after a public hearing, shall consolidate, annex, or reconstitute the school district under this section.

(2) The state board may grant additional time for a public school or school district to remove itself from fiscal distress by issuing a written finding supported by a majority of the state board explaining in detail that the public school or school district could not remove itself from fiscal distress during the relevant time period due to impossibility caused by external forces beyond the control of the public school or school district.
