Many protests have been held
A proposal that suggested putting plans to close a school on hold was due to be discussed by councillors on Wednesday.
A decision to merge eight Stoke-on-Trent high schools into five academies was given the go-ahead last month.
It has since been recommended that Trentham High School should be taken off the proposals until legal issues involving academies were resolved.
On Friday, parents in London lost a High Court battle over the way sponsors are chosen for government academies.
Stoke-on-Trent City Council's executive and members board was scheduled to discuss the matter on Wednesday night.
Council leaders had previously decided to shut Trentham High, Berry Hill and Mitchell High as part of a £250m reorganisation.
Parents, teachers and pupils have held many protests over the changes - which would take place between 2009 and 2014.
Under the plans, five schools - St Peter's, James Brindley, Edensor, Blurton and Brownhills - would take on the pupils of the schools which would shut to create five academies.
An overview and scrutiny committee has been looking at the issue.
