The Iowa City School Board voted against an addition to North Central Junior High School on Tuesday.

Board members unanimously decided to wait on the more than 14,000-square-foot extension to the school, which would have cost more than $4 million.

Board member Gayle Klouda said she wanted to make sure North Central was in need of the additional space before approving it, citing the district’s already tight budget.

“I really don’t like being put in this position,” she said.

Board members approved a renovation project at City High School, agreeing that the renovation has been discussed for a long time and is overdue. The district plans on renovating more than 14,000 square feet of the school’s music department.
