Prodcedures for flyer distribution to families

peachjar eflyersOur District cooperates with community groups and noncommercial organizations that sponsor activities of an educational/enrichment nature for students by distributing materials electronically via Peachjar to District families. As part of our efforts to be more environmentally friendly, embrace innovative technology and maintain fiscal responsibility, we are using electronic flyer delivery as our primary method of flyer distribution.

To request flyer approval, follow the steps below. Once approved (please see approval criteria below), your flyer will be emailed to parents at selected schools and posted online. 

  1. Important: Read the SRCS Flyer Approval Policies in the next section below
  2. Visit www.peachjar.com
  3. Register as an Enrichment or Community Organization (account type)
  4. Upload your flyer for approval

Your flyer will automatically be submitted to the District office. District staff will review the material and approve or deny based on the standards described below. Organizations pay a small service fee to post and distribute eflyers (typically much less than the cost to copy and deliver paper flyers) only if they charge for their program/service. 

Some schools many continue to distribute some flyers in print, or have copies available in the front office. In these cases, SRCS will contact you after your flyers have been approved through Peachjar for information on the next steps.

NOTE: If you are a parent group at one of our SRCS schools, these instructions do not apply. instructions.

If you have any questions, please contact communications@srcs.org.
