The North Allegheny School Board will not vote next week on an administration proposal to close Peebles Elementary School for the 2014-15 school year.
School board president Maureen Grosheider said Wednesday that board members would like to wait until there is new enrollment data, and they won't have that until late August.
"There will be no vote on Peebles Elementary School in the immediate future. We will dedicate our energies to the task at hand, preparing for 2013-14," she said.
A vote on May 22 "is neither necessary nor wise," she added. "We have time to make a more informed decision."
She said the board's priorities over the summer will be working on a new comprehensive plan and what is needed for the 2013-14 school year.
