1 Palm Beach County School District Advertising Initiative
2 The Proposal To sell and place age- and content-appropriate advertisements on district websites and other property to promote business partners and raise revenue The district s 1,100+ registered business partners could become the core group of targeted advertisers, and other local, regional and national businesses would be targeted. The district s websites receive 4 million + total page views per month - traffic can be monetized.
3 Pros Sustainable recurring revenue stream to assist in current economic crisis Large appetite of consumer product manufacturers and other businesses to reach school-aged children and their parents in key demographics Cons Considerable time and possible financial resource requirements for effective implementation Impact of commercialism vs. education Potential bombardment of advertising messages on impressionable children
4 Pros SUSTAINABLE RECURRING REVENUE STREAM NY City School District school bus ad campaign raised approximately $5.9 million per year. Jefferson County, CO bus campaign generates approx $500,000 over 4 years in added revenue from a local bank ($7 per bus per day). Minnesota s St. Francis School District s wrap around locker ads generate $230,000 per year over 5 schools. Orange County School District (FL) raises approximately $500,000 over four years in web and other campus advertising. Volusia County School District (FL) launched web ads, 2011.
5 Pros LARGE APPETITE OF CONSUMER PRODUCT MANUFACTURERS AND OTHER BUSINESSES TO REACH SCHOOL-AGED CHILDREN Many advertisers view children as a 3-in-1 market: > As buyers - $15,000,000 in purchasing power > As Influencers Influence approximately $160 billion per year in parental purchases > As future adult purchasers Children grow up to be brand loyal adults. $2 billion of US s $230 billion in advertising expenditures was directed at juvenile consumers in 2004.
6 Cons CONSIDERABLE TIME RESOURCE REQUIREMENTS FOR EFFECTIVE IMPLEMENTATION Very few school districts are set up to sell advertising on a broad scale. Significant resources must be applied to: > Developing a policy and guidelines for school advertising that will embrace practical, responsible approaches and protect the integrity of education > Soliciting and reviewing sponsored materials and activities to meet guidelines > Deciding where and where not to allow advertising in schools > Soliciting, contracting and placing advertising, and billing and collecting advertising revenues.
7 Cons Impact of commercialism vs. education "American Association of Pediatrics 2006 research: Children younger than 8 years are cognitively and psychologically defenseless against advertising. They do not understand the notion of intent to sell and frequently accept advertising claims at face value." Advertising messages can contradict messages schools are trying to promote (i.e. healthy diets vs. cola ads). vs. Learning at a young age is more than just the experience in the classroom. It involves interaction throughout the campus.
8 Types of School Advertising District/School Web Sites Direct Advertising Posters, book covers, scoreboards, buses Sponsored Educational Material Often subtle advertising messages like Exxon s lesson plan about healthy, flourishing wildlife in Alaska with the underlying attempt to clean up its image post Valdez incident. Contests and Incentive Programs Recently popular means of getting computers and other classroom aides are nothing more than attempts by manufacturers to cull demographic data.
9 Is it Worth It? Corporate offers may sound like they are worth a lot of money on the surface; however, school districts that have engaged in these tactics have found the revenue often times is not sufficient to significantly offset budget short falls. Florida educators already face a difficult job in trying to impart quality education to all students. Schools relying on corporate sponsorships and marketing messages may increase the chatter that competes with the education message. There are no federally mandated guidelines for advertising in schools, so each school district must develop a clear plan for evaluating potential ad revenue vs. impact of ad messages.
10 Is it Worth It? Given the significant budget shortfall facing PBCSD, a pragmatic evaluation of the revenue potential is warranted. PBCSD is significantly larger than most school districts that are leveraging in-school advertising. PBCSD s results could be more robust than those referenced, depending on the type/size program selected. A combination of in-school and off-location (buses) advertising could prove to be lucrative without the education vs. indoctrination argument. It is clear that the decision to allow outside commercial advertising in PBCSD is a serious consideration that will draw the ire of opposition. Further research is needed to make a decision that can effectively help bridge the budget shortfall and withstand the scrutiny of the vocal opposition.
