The motion was passed 5 - 4 among the Board of Education. With this vote, WRE will not be restructured into any of the district's proposed academies next fall.
Cook emphasized the importance that it was not necessary for the district to "rush into anything," if it was not to be the best effort possible.
"I don't want to superimpose any short-term plans," Cook said.
Because there is the budget to consider, Cook said he would like to have his "unanswered questions" taken care of before he can focus on a restructuring plan in the high school.
The next regular work session for the Board of Education is scheduled for 7 p.m. March 22 at the LCSD District Office.
