Revenue Through In-School Advertising Still on Table for Matawan Aberdeen Board of Education
By Chelsea Naso
The Matawan Aberdeen Board of Education is getting ready to decide whether or not they should sell advertising space throughout the district to corporate sponsors. Advertisements could potentially be placed on school buses, in classrooms, in hallways, at athletic fields and online.
Business Administrator James Strimple suggested at the Sept. 24 meeting that the board consider a resolution allowing Advantage3, an alternative revenue generation company, to conduct research about the possibility of making money by advertising at Matawan Regional High School and Matawan Aberdeen Middle School.
A sample resolution is expected to be on the agenda at the Oct. 8 committee meeting. At that time, the board is expected to consider and discuss the resolution, which could be voted on as early as the board’s regular action meeting on Oct. 22.
