The Pleasanton school board has canceled the special meeting it scheduled for tonight to review and possibly accept a bid for improvements to Hearst Elementary School.
Myla Grasso, school district spokeswoman, said too many board members would be unable to attend tonight's meeting so that there wouldn't be the quorum needed to take action in the bids.
The work at Hearst includes adding stucco and paint on the buildings holding the school's multi-purpose room, library and kindergarten classroom.
The work is part of the overall $1.3 million project to repair mold damage to the school, which is Pleasanton's newest of its nine elementary schools.
In a sign of the weak economic times in the construction industry, 19 contractors responded to the job when it was first advertised, 15 completed the pre-bid walk of the site, with five bidders submitting the lowest proposals for the work. They ranged from $147,000 by TPA Construction to a high of $220,000 by Euro Style Management.
The school board is expected to award the contract at its next regularly scheduled meeting.
