Iowa City Community School District

Child-Centered: Future Focused

Community Distribution of Information

  • Peachjar Logo Our District cooperates with approved community partners by posting eflyers online and distributing them electronically through our service provider, Peachjar. 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 and posted online.

    • Visit www.peachjar.com
    • Register as a Program Provider (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.  However, if you are promoting an event or opportunity that is free of charge, then there will be no charge to post your flyer.  Please contact Chris Ledford at chrisledford@peachjar.com for assistance in setting up your account.

    Flyers will be approved once a week and posted for a maximum of 30 days.

    Flyers posted through this service are not an Iowa City Community School District publication, nor are they in any way endorsed or sponsored by the District. Publications are being provided only to inform of available community activities and opportunities.

    DISTRIBUTION OF INFORMATION
    The District recognizes that students, employees, and community members may want to share information with the District community that is non-District-sponsored. As the distribution of print materials is time and cost prohibitive, the District posts information electronically.

    Individuals or organizations wishing to post information through Peachjar must complete the following steps:

    • Visit www.peachjar.com
    • Register as a Program Provider (account type)
    • Upload your flyer for approval

    Information will not be posted if it gives the impression that the District is either promoting or condemning a specific business, religion, religious organization, political candidate, position on a political issue or can otherwise reasonably be interpreted as creating a violation of the District’s Non-Discrimination Statement. In addition to exercising this discretion, the following factors are illustrative but not limiting considerations:

    • Is the information in the best interests of the students and/or staff?
    • Is the information related to the educational tasks of the school system?
    • Does the information appeal to students generally or is it targeted to a narrow group of students?
    • Does the material refrain from indecent, vulgar, or lewd language?
    • Does the information promote activities that are cultural, educational, civic, or recreational?

    School organizations may sponsor activities in which products and services are sold to benefit the programs of the school. Organizations or individuals operating on a for-profit basis may not utilize the service for:

    • distribution of pamphlets or flyers urging students and their families and others to purchase services or products
    • the sale of products and services
    • the advertising/promotion on school/school district websites or through the District electronic mail system of any product or service
    • activities, which would interfere with the normal educational process by involving school employees and/or students. 

    * The District has full discretion when determining Peachjar content.
