Enlisting help from a firm is one of four ways the Hatboro-Horsham School District is striving to expand its corporate sponsorship pool.
Advertising. Naming rights. Corporate sponsorships. Hatboro-Horsham School District hopes to make all of these more commonplace on district facilities and grounds. But, since adopting a school district policy last year, the district has not made as much headway as it had hoped and is considering—as one of a four-pronged process—the possibility of hiring a firm to help market the district to would-be advertisers. "We wanted to take a look at the idea of contracting with a professional," Bob Reichert, Hatboro-Horsham's director of business affairs told the school board during Monday night's work session. "We don’t have a lot of resources, time, energy and expertise to put together a real comprehensive program." So, on Monday, Bryan …

The business partnership agreement between Hatboro-Horsham School District and the Horsham Athletic Club permits gym advertising in exchange for fitness training.
Hatboro-Horsham High School will save more than $8,000 in training student athletes and the Horsham Athletic Club will have several banners displayed on school property under a pact approved Tuesday. The in-kind business partnership is the first that the Hatboro-Horsham School Board approved following last month's approval of a sponsorship and advertising policy which would allow businesses, on a case-by-case basis, to offer services, or pay outright in exchange for advertising in school programs, or on school facilities. District officials told Patch previously that the coordination with the Horsham Road gym is what spurred the need for the policy, which would also permit commercial businesses to pay for naming rights of district …

Under the approved ordinance, billboard companies could erect signs up to 25 feet high on three roads in Horsham Township.
Should billboard companies look to advertise in Horsham Township, officials are ready to tell them where to go. Precisely, prospects would be directed to County Line Road, Easton Road, or Route 309. Sections of those roadways are the only places in the 17-square-mile township that billboards are permitted under an ordinance that the township council unanimously adopted Monday night. Township planner E. Van Rieker said the thought in establishing the ordinance was to “make sure Horsham is challenge-proof” in terms of litigious battles that ensue when municipalities do not have regulations in place to provide for billboards. Prior to Monday’s adoption, the township had provided for signs up to 200 square feet in its I-3 industrial district, …

Hatboro-Horsham School District’s new board policy allows commercial businesses to advertise on district property or in printed materials, sponsor school events and potentially buy naming rights for district-owned property, including Hatters Stadium.
A Hatboro-Horsham School Board policy aimed at generating additional revenue streams through advertising and business sponsorships was adopted Monday night without any discussion. The commercial sponsorship/partnership agreements policy establishes the general guidelines that businesses would need to adhere to when paying for advertising on district property, the district’s Web site, or in printed materials. The policy also lays the ground rules for sponsorships, which are defined in the policy as “a payment of money or other economic benefit to a school or to the District in exchange for recognition.” The third piece is partnerships, which may or may not generate funding, officials have said. Currently, Hatboro-Horsham High School is …
