Highlight

A school district may be adversely affected by an annexation decision that causes the district to lose land or gain unwanted land.
The State Board of Public School Education may consider the amount of land involved in an annexation petition.
The catch-all statutory provision allowing the State Board to consider "[a]ll other relevant factors" in an annexation case is not unconstitutionally vague or an unconstitutional delegation of legislative authority.
