Peachjar e-Flyers

  • The Pasadena Unified School District works with schools, school support groups, school organizations and community organizations to make information about not-for-profit activities or services and enrichment opportunities available to families providing their material meets our standards.

    The district makes approved fliers available as electronic fliers through Peachjar for your convenience. All requests from groups or individuals to make information about not-for-profit activities or enrichment services available to the Pasadena Unified School District students will be referred to Peachjar.

    The district does not distribute fliers directly to students.

    Approved fliers, information or brochures with school and district announcements, newsletters, messages and information about not-for-profit (501C3) activities or services; school activities or services such as PTA and School Site Council notices; and enrichment opportunities such as after-school or summer activities by schools such as athletic camps are delivered to parents by email, posted on school’s Peachjar website and keep parents informed about upcoming school activities, programs and events and community or youth activities, programs and events.

    We do not approve fundraising efforts from nonprofit groups.

    No commercial publications will be posted or distributed unless their purpose is to further a school activity, such as graduation, class pictures or class rings or to offer a pre-approved enrichment opportunity to our students.

    Peachjar manages this flier distribution on behalf of our schools using the latest electronic communication technology. Here’s a link to a short informational video.

    Once an organization’s flier is posted to a school’s Peachjar site, the flier is delivered to all parents’ email addresses as an embedded image, not a link. This means parents can immediately see the flier and be able to click through to the organization’s website.

    If a parent deletes the email and later wants some information from that flier, the parent can view that flier online by going to the school’s Peachjar website.

    Schools, school support groups, and booster clubs can post and distribute their fliers, newsletters and important information usually at no cost. If a flier describes an activity or event with a fee, both of the following criteria must be met in order for the flyer to be posted without charge.

    1. The activity/participation fee must be payable to the school, school district, or the school’s authorized parent group.
    2. The activity must be conducted by school/district staff, students or parent group volunteers.

    Community organizations (non-profit) may post a flyer without charge through Peachjar (subject to school/district approval) provided the flier contains information about a community event that is held without charge to attendees and does not lead to a participation fee or serve as an enticement to buy products or services.

    Community organizations and enrichment providers (both for-profit and non-profit) are subject to Peachjar’s service fee when they post a flier to promote/announce an activity or event with a participation fee. This also happens when the flier describes an event that is held without charge for the purpose of enticing attendees to buy products or services or to participate in a fee-based program or activity. Peachjar charges outside organizations a fee for this service that is typically much less than the cost they paid in the past to copy and deliver fliers to schools.

    What fliers meet the district’s criteria?

    • Fliers that meet the district’s criteria are fliers that let parents know about:
      • Programs or events held within Pasadena Unified School District;
      • Activities that benefit our students, help develop character, etc.;
      • Programs or events that are youth-related or related to youth education;
      • Fliers that come from approved youth character-building organizations;
    • Fliers that pertain to activities of the community recreation program;
    • Fliers that do not promote nor discourage religion;
    • Fliers that do not promote dances, parties, etc.
    • Fliers that do not recruit the students and staff of PUSD
    • Fliers nondenominational in nature;
    • Fliers that contain school names only as part of the location information for events held at schools and in no way imply events are endorsed by school or district; and
    • Fliers that do not disrupt the educational process, violate the rights of others, include material that is defamatory, invade the privacy of others, infringe on a copyright, or are obscene, vulgar or indecent.

    The following information must appear on any flier distributed:

    • The sponsoring organization’s full name,
    • The sponsoring organization’s address,
    • The sponsoring organization’s email address,
    • The sponsoring organization’s telephone number,
    • The sponsoring organization’s web address, and
    • The sponsoring organization’s non-profit 501c3 status.

    I’m an organization interested in distributing a flier, now what?

    Peachjar manages flier distribution on behalf of our schools using the latest electronic communication technology.

    To post a flier, organizations just register at www.peachjar.com, select the desired school(s) and upload the flier. The flier is then automatically submitted to the district or school for approval. Once approved, that flier is delivered to parents by email as an embedded image (not a link) and posted online.

    Once your flier is posted to a school’s Peachjar site, parents can view your flier through the Peachjar logo on the school website. Additionally, your flier will be delivered to all parents’ email addresses as an embedded image, not a link. This means parents will immediately see your flier and be able to click through to your website.

    Community organizations and enrichment providers (both for-profit and non-profit) are subject to Peachjar’s service fee when they post a flier to promote/announce an activity or event with a participation fee. This also happens when the flier describes an event that is held without charge for the purpose of enticing attendees to buy products or services or to participate in a fee-based program or activity.

    Peachjar charges outside organizations a fee for this service that is typically much less than the cost they paid in the past to copy and deliver fliers to schools.

    Organizations can see pricing and discount information on Peachjar’s website or contact Peachjar Customer Service for pricing and discount information at 858-997-2117. Fees for this service are typically much less than the cost organizations paid in the past to print/copy and deliver fliers to schools.
