Sayreville schools consider selling ad space on buses

Sayreville school officials are considering selling ad space, including on its buses, to raise money.

The initiative calls for the district to develop a plan to sell advertising to hospitals, universities and other vendors.

Superintendent Richard Labbe tells he believes the proposal could generate as much as an additional $1 million.

Labbe says the district’s 2014-2015 total operating budget is just over $79.5 million compared to $76.3 million during the 2013-2014 school year.

It will be up to the school board to regulate the district’s marketing plan.
