BRAINERD SCHOOL BOARD: Cut in athletic fees recommended


About one in three Brainerd High School athletes qualify for grants through Warrior Way Inc., administered through Brainerd Sports Boosters, to help pay for athletic participation fees.

And participation in Warrior sports and activities is rebounding after fees were reduced last year following a dramatic fee hike in 2008 after about $5.5 million in district-wide budget cuts that followed the defeat of the 2007 Brainerd School District referendum.
