BRAINERD SCHOOL DISTRICT: District forges ahead with Baxter park partnership


The Brainerd School Board Facilities Committee recommended board approval Wednesday to renovate the tennis courts area at Baxter Elementary School, with costs shared equally between the district and city of Baxter.

The Baxter City Council approved the cost-sharing agreement a few months ago. 

The tennis courts are located on school district property but adjoin Oscar Kristofferson Park, which is part-owned by the district and the city of Baxter.
