The Manatee County School Board decided Monday night to postpone a vote on the sale of 18 acres next to Braden River High School.
The board said the proper steps had not been followed in its new procedure for selling properties.
The 22-step procedure includes talking to school administrators, the Student Advisory Committee and the Parent Teacher Organization of a school that may have land sold.
It also includes getting appraisals and surveys, reviewing offers, preparing contracts to be reviewed by the attorney and final payments.
The Braden River property has not been appraised or designated a surplus yet, which is part of the process, as well.
