The Cabot School Board has voted unanimously to keep their high school intact for now.

Declining enrollment and continued budget cuts are pushing school leaders to make tough choices.

They're deciding whether to close the school and tuition its 55 students to nearby schools. Another option is to create an agricultural academy.

Supporters say it would attract out-of-state students with families willing to pay $45,000 a year to go there.

Monday night, the board voted 5-0 to preserve the school as is. That puts off any decision to move forward with plans to create the academy.

The board says it will work to submit a plan to the state on the future of the school by December.
