The Springfield School District is looking for corporate sponsors to help underwrite its cable channel.
Springfield District 186 Superintendent Jennifer Gill says she is asking the community to step up to help the district continue broadcasting board meetings.
“It does have to be truly a sponorship. You have to say you sponsor the public schools. They can give a shout-out to a school but it cannot be an ad. Their name will appear on the screen,” says Gill.
Gill says district employees rely on the broadcasts and their AV Coordinator is slated to be laid off as part of budget cuts.
