Why Are We Marketing APS?

  • Raises money for the district at a time when budgets are tight
  • Provides more flexibility and less dependency on state funding and local property taxes
  • Can help save threatened programs
  • Enhances brand image by applying value to district assets and our audience
Football for marketing Public school districts across the nation (as well as private and charter schools) are recognizing the value of marketing. We have assets, such as our website and athletic venues, that can be used to help advertisers reach our employees and parents without interrupting the educational process.
We know companies want to reach our employees and parents. Let's face it, a lot of them already are doing so without benefiting our schools or the district. For example, you may have unknowingly bought an unlicensed t-shirt sporting a school mascot, not realizing that your child's school never saw any of the proceeds! Have you ever had a pop-up ad show up on you school's website -- they're not receiving any benefit from that, either.
We want to make sure that money earned in our stadiums, on our website, through our communications and using our assets helps benefit our schools and our students. Our sales and marketing campaign is one way we can do that.
