Hermantown school board reinstates cheerleading program

Email

HERMANTOWN - Two weeks after eliminating funding for cheerleading — a move that led to community outcry and surprise — the Hermantown School Board voted to reinstate money for the program Monday night.

The board voted 4-2 to reinstate the money, after earlier this month approving the elimination of $2,500 for the program as part of a larger budget reduction package. More than $260,000 was cut from the district’s budget for next year, including two elementary teacher positions.
