In an effort to provide continued outstanding educational and co-curricular programming at a low cost to taxpayers, the administration of Point Pleasant Borough Schools actively explores new ways to reduce spending and increase revenue from non-traditional sources.
In early 2010 the district began offering local businesses and organizations the opportunity to post full-color signage throughout district athletic venues.
A comprehensive selection of advertising packages meet local businesses' marketing objectives, providing valuable exposure in the community. These Board-approved messages also communicate to the community that local businesses are actively participating in youth programs.
During the inaugural year, the district raised over $35,000 in revenue in addition to the receipt of a donation of two new scoreboards and scorer's tables valued at over $40,000.
It has been a very successful program for the district and in these difficult financial times, creative financial solutions are essential.
