Perrysburg schools officials won't ask a group of volunteers tasked with developing a master plan to reconvene until a few months from now.
"They have a little bit of hiatus right now," Superintendent Thomas Hosler said.
In March, the ad hoc committee recommended that the district should build a school for grades 7 and 8 on the Perrysburg High School campus and convert the junior high into a grades 5 and 6 building.
The group of volunteer community members, business leaders, and government officials have spent months studying the district's growth and planning how Perrysburg can deal with overcrowding.
But the group's recommendation was, after all, only a recommendation, said school board member Valerie Hovland during a meeting in late April when the volunteers were discussed.
"People think we made the decision," she said. "We did not."
School board members should talk with the public and get feedback "while it's still fresh," said board member Walter Edinger.
He added he wants to the board to meet again with the volunteers in a retreat before a school board meeting.
