Harford school principals can OK advertising contracts
By DAVID ANDERSON
An updated advertising policy for Harford County Public Schools was approved by the Harford County Board of Education at its meeting Monday night. The policy, which board members debated for most of 2013, was approved 9-1 at the board’s meeting in Bel Air. Board member Robert Frisch cast the dissenting vote.
The advertising policy is separate from the school system’s policy for naming school facilities after individuals Ė the board approved a revised version of that policy in the spring of 2013. Advertising is prohibited “In or about property owned or controlled by HCPS including any publications owned, controlled or under the authority of HCPS,” with several exceptions, according to the policy.
