Q The school district would like to enter an agreement for a private vendor to place interactive kiosks on school property. While the primary purpose is for the promotion of school events and providing educational information, the private vendor will also sell advertising on the kiosks and share the revenue derived thereby with the district. The school district will not own the kiosks or pay any fee for their use. Is such an arrangement allowable?

A Yes, because the primary purpose of the agreement would be the promotion of school events and to keep students advised of all relevant educational information and not solely for the purpose of allowing private advertising and as a revenue generator for the school district. The private advertising would be ancillary to those purposes. (Attorney Generalís Opinion to Hemphill, April 3, 2015)
