The Dalton Board of Education's vote on a new grade school has been postponed until members can hold a work session, according to district officials.

Board members were previously scheduled to vote Monday for a proposed middle-high school to reduce overcrowding concerns at Dalton Middle and High.

The new school would be attended by nearly 1,400 students.

The project is estimated to cost between $70 and $90 million.

Administrators have proposed paying for the school with a 30-year bond that would need to be approved by the city council, and likely through a public referendum.

As of Monday afternoon, a date for the work session had not been set.
