ECASD details ideas for alternate revenue at meeting Monday

Eau Claire (WQOW) – For the first time, Eau Claire Area School District officials are detailing other ways to raise revenue at a meeting Monday.

Traditionally, districts meet their budgets by getting money from state funding, taxpayer money, or making cuts to programs and services. The meeting Monday was meant to discuss other avenues.

Just a handful of them include: copyrighting or licensing ECASD-created materials or programs; assessing real estate, housing, and development potential; using advertising, sponsored content, or naming rights; establishing an adult education program; and public-private partnerships.

Last week, School Board President Joe Luginbill told News 18 these solutions would allow the district to "own our own destiny”.

Back in July, staff told us the district was still $2million over budget, even after shifting things around.
