Instructions for Outside Organizations
Procedures for Flyer Distribution to Families

Our district cooperates with community groups and 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 have transitioned from paper to electronic flyer delivery.

To request flyer approval, follow the steps below. Once approved, your flyer will be emailed to all parents. Paper flyers from outside organizations will no longer be distributed.
1. IMPORTANT: Read the WRSD Flyer Approval Policies in the next section below.
2. Visit www.peachjar.com
3. Register as an Enrichment Provider (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. Peachjar charges outside organizations a fee for this service that is typically much less than the cost to copy and deliver paper flyers to each school.
What if a flyer is denied?

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

Paper Flyers

If an organization wishes to provide paper flyers, the flyers must first be approved at the WRSD District Office. The organization can then deliver copies of the flyers to the district distribution center and they will be delivered via our district courier. Schools will place flyers at their front counter for students to pick up if they wish to. No paper copies will be given to teachers or staff to distribute to students for taking home.

Flyers sent to WRSD Staff Only

If you would like to send information to WRSD staff, you can select "for District Staff" during your flyer upload process. Material sent to staff should be information about possible student workshops or field trip opportunities, or availability of inexpensive or free, quality classroom materials.

Posters

Posters from outside organizations to be mounted for display on school grounds must first be approved by the WRSD District Office.
