    Ads May Be Coming to Dallas Schools
    Ads may soon be coming to Dallas schools.

    Ads could soon be coming to a Dallas public school near you.

    Leaders in the Dallas Indepenent School District are considering allowing companies to advertise at school campuses.

    Selling ads could help the district raise desperately needed funds to offset budget deficits.

    The ads could be written, graphic or digital statements. The district would have editorial control to ban ads that they find to be "inappropriate" for schools or children. In other words, parents shouldn't worry about advertisments for alcohol, tobacco, guns or anything promoting nudity.

    Advertisements would only be allowed with approval from the superintendent or a designee.  Read more on the DISD proposal here.
