School Advertising on the Way

Anita Clark:

adison public schools will allow advertising at athletic sites for the first time under a plan that has won unanimous approval from School Board members.
In its continuing search for new sources of money, the Madison School District said Wednesday it will begin accepting advertisements in its high school gymnasiums and other athletic locations.
The district hopes to make about $200,000 over two years.
“I really think we’re on the right track here,” said board President Johnny Winston Jr., a longtime advocate of finding new revenue sources who chaired a committee that studied the issue.
