Grant of a writ of mandate commanding county superintendent to process payroll requests pursuant to a transition plan adopted by the outgoing board of a high school district, a plan that awarded severance buyout packages to several district administrative employees, including plaintiffs, is reversed as the superintendents' refusal to approve payroll warrants to carry out the transition plan was a proper exercise of his authority under Education Code section 42127.6(j) and he did not abuse his discretion in exercising that authority.
