Thursday, the Burnsville Board of Education approved agreements allowing high school letters to students who compete with the Minnesota State High School Clay Target League, , Gleason’s Gymnastics, and Minnesota Valley Gymnastics Center.
The agreements follow a precedent set in 2005, when the Boardgranted lettering opportunities to students involved in the Burnsville-Minnesota Valley Figure Skating Club.
The measure was met with enthusiastic support on the Board.
"I'm all for it. This allows students to earn a varsity letter in something they're passionate about, which is great," said Board Member Jim Schmid.
