MCPS will begin using electronic distribution for flyers starting October 4. This new service, PeachJar, will allow organizations to electronically submit files for distribution that will then be emailed to parents and placed online for a small fee (if approved). The PeachJar system offers many benefits to our community partners including the saving of trees, less time driving to schools, the ability to embed links to registration or more information, and analytics provided for each flyer you submit.
Flyers to be distributed on or after October 15, 2016, must use the PeachJar system.
To request flyer approval, follow the steps below. Once approved, your flyer will be emailed to all parents and posted online. Paper flyers from outside organizations will no longer be distributed.
- Visit www.peachjar.com
- Register as an Enrichment / Community Org. (account type).
- Upload your flyer for approval.
Your flyer will be automatically submitted to the district office. District staff will review the material and approve or deny based on the standards below. Peachjar charges a fee for this service that is typically much less than the cost to copy and deliver paper flyers to each school.
MCPS shall approve, in advance any outside communications or materials that are distributed or made available on any school property.
Communications to parents from parent organizations affiliated with the school may be distributed and approved by the relevant school principal.
