FILE- In this Feb. 9, 2010 file photo, Marc Horner, fleet manager for Jeffco Public Schools, walks near school busses with advertisements on their sides at the school's bus maintenance facility in Lakewood, Colo. Advertising on high school athletic fields is common, but one metro Atlanta school district hopes to slap ads on cafeteria trays, auditorium seat backs and salad bar sneeze guards to help make more money for its cash-strapped schools. The Douglas County school board is set to vote on a proposal that would invite big national names to put their logos in the district's 37 schools. Douglas County is not alone: school districts across the country have begun selling advertising space to help raise money. (AP Photo/Ed Andrieski, File)
