Community Fliers with Peachjar

Flyer Distribution

button-blue-peachjar_174x62Starting in the 2017-2018 school year, the Issaquah School District will support our local community partners by posting digital flyers online and distributing them electronically through our service provider, Peachjar. As part of our efforts to embrace innovative technology and deliver information where parents and community members may easily access it, we have transitioned from paper to electronic bulletins and flyers. 

To request E-flyer approval, community partners should follow the steps below. Once approved, the flyer will be emailed to all parents and posted online. ISD has phased out Kidmail and paper flyers from outside organizations are no longer being posted in schools. 

  • Visit www.peachjar.com
  • Register as an Enrichment/Community Org. (account type).
  • Upload your flyer for approval.

The 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. 


The Issaquah School District (ISD) recognizes the important role that local nonprofit and community organizations play in providing educational and cultural programs for students in non-school hours. ISD allows non-profit, charitable and civic organizations, and businesses to distribute information to students and families through the Peachjar system. Upon approval, flyers are emailed directly to parents. All materials must be approved by the district.

PTSAs and Booster clubs

PTSAs, Booster clubs, ASBs or other organizations that exist solely to serve ISD's mission and students and whose revenue directly supports ISD and its schools may also submit flyers for distribution through Peachjar. PTSAs and Booster Clubs need to coordinate with their school office regarding flyer uploads.

Non-profit and For-profit Organizations and Civic Organizations

Any organization seeking permission to distribute materials through the schools must meet the following requirements:

Flyers must promote a social, recreational, or educational benefit to ISD Children.

To post fliers free of charge, you must qualify as a non-profit, charitable, or civic organization (UBI or Tax ID number required) and the item, service, or event you are advertising is offered at no cost.

Flyers that advertise a benefit that incurs a charge or fee or promotes such services or events will cost $25.00 per flier per school to post.

Submit materials through the Peachjar system and receive approval from the district before the items are distributed.

Out of state or generic mass mailers from national organizations do not meet our definition community organizations and thus will not be approved for distribution.

Flyers must include the following disclaimer on materials:

The Issaquah School District does not sponsor, endorse, or recommend any of the organizations, services, or activities described in these materials. In consideration for the privilege to distribute these materials, ISD shall be held harmless from any causes of action filed in any court or administrative tribunal arising out of the distribution of these materials, including all costs, attorney’s fees, judgments, or awards

Please note: Flyers may only appear on Peachjar for a maximum of 60 days.

Submission process

Organizations should register at Peachjar.com

Organizations must submit their flyer through the Peachjar system to be considered for approval.

After an organization has submitted a flyer online through Peachjar, it will be automatically sent to the district office. District staff will review the material and approve or deny flyers based on the standards above.

Flyer approval takes place on Mondays and Thursdays.

Once approved, the flyer will be emailed to all parents and posted online to the designated school websites.

The district asks that organizations submit flyers at least a week in advance of the date that they would like to receive approval.

Peachjar charges a fee for this service. Peachjar will waive its service fees for local community organizations posting to ISD schools when promoting a free event or activity that does not entice participants to join a fee-based program, or purchase products or services.

To receive the waived service fees a community organization must contact Peachjar to make the request (858-997-2117 ex 130).

Printed copies of approved flyers

While the district office is no longer approving physical copies of fliers, some schools may elect to accept paper copies of fliers to have at the school itself, usually in or near the school office. Please contact the school office directly to inquire as to whether or not the school will accept any paper copies. Schools who elect to accept paper copies will approve fliers at the school office. Please note, It is the responsibility of the organization to provide the copies to the school.

Posters

Approvals of poster requests are handled by the building administrator for each school. Posters must meet the same criteria as flyers to be eligible for school/community bulletin boards.

Materials for teachers and staff

ISD does not approve promotional materials targeted at teachers or other staff members. Decisions about what can be distributed or placed in school staff lounges is determined by the building administrator at each location. Teachers and staff members cannot distribute promotional materials directly to students.
