JOPLIN, Mo. — The Joplin Board of Education plans to move forward with a proposal to allow sponsorship opportunities, advertising and naming rights around the school district.
Dawn Sticklen, a board member who has been researching the proposal, told the board at its monthly meeting Tuesday night that her recommendation is for the board to allow the sale and placement of age- and content-appropriate advertisements on district property and websites. This could generate new revenue for the school district and build a network of business partners, she said.
