8/21 - Information about Peachjar, the electronic flier posting/approval system

San Diego Unified School District partners with Peachjar to provide an electronic alternative for distributing fliers. 

Peachjar’s eflier management system electronically approves fliers and emails them directly to parents’ inboxes. Parents can view e-fliers from their smartphone or computer. In addition, fliers are also posted on the school's website for easy viewing. 

Use of Peachjar by district schools is voluntary, but encouraged for several reasons, which include:

  • It saves office staff time because everything is done online, including approval. Staff no longer has to spend time preparing fliers for distribution to students in their backpacks.
  • It sends fliers directly to the parents rather than using students as the distribution channel. Parents are emailed the fliers or they may choose to view them online. And they are sent as a group in one email – not multiple emails.
  • The service is free to our schools. Community organizations pay a small service fee to post and distribute efliers, which typically is much less than the cost they pay to copy and deliver paper fliers. Community partners work directly with Peachjar to pay and post fliers. (Please note that PTAs and internal school organizations do not pay a fee).
  • It saves paper

Schools using Peachjar are still required to follow the district's flier approval guidelines and procedures as outlined in Administrative Procedure 9350 and the District Policy Manual. The district adheres to a strict "No advertising policy," which is detailed in the District Policy Manual on page 139.
