Parkland School Board to Weigh Bus Ads Tonight
The Parkland School District has been considering putting up ads in school buses as a way to bring in new revenue and balance budgets.
The Parkland School District is moving forward with plans to possibly sell ad space inside its school buses as a way to raise revenue for the district and balance its budgets.
The school board will review an agreement in connection with the bus ads at its meeting tonight, Jan. 17, at 8 at the administration building. The board will also look to establish a committee that would review ads before they are put up in buses.
Patch told you about the district's initiative in October. At the time, district spokeswoman Nicole McGalla said Parkland officials were exploring opportunities to contract with a company to develop ads that would be geared toward health, nutrition, higher education and safety.
The board's building and grounds committee had looked at a sample magnetic ad that would be placed at the inside roof line of school buses, if the initiative moves forward.
The board's meeting will be preceded by a workshop at 7 p.m.
