In October, 2016 Barrow County School System transitioned from paper flyers to electronic flyers via the Peachjar system. This transition was made to help reduce staff time, save money, and continue our efforts to be an environmentally conscious school system.


Parents:

No action is required on your part. You should have already received a welcome email from Peachjar that includes a username and password. This is provided to give you the opportunity to manage your account and flyer delivery preferences.  You do not need to login to receive or view eflyers. You can opt out of receiving emails at any time, or select the frequency of email notifications. The flyers can always be viewed by clicking on the Peachjar button on your school's website.

To ensure smooth delivery of this communication, we suggest you add “school@peachjar.com” to your email contacts. Note: add “school@peachjar.com” to your contact list just as written; do not change it to the name of your school @peachjar.com. When you receive your first eflyer, be sure to click “always display images.”

This system is used exclusively for distribution of school-approved flyers. Your email address will not be shared or used for any other purpose. If you need additional technical support please call Peachjar at (877) 402-1786.

Thank you for helping us save time, money, and lots of trees!


Enrichment Providers/Community Organizations:

Our school system is happy to partner with community groups and organizations that sponsor activities of an educational/enrichment nature for students by distributing materials electronically via Peachjar. As part of our effort 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 distributed.  Paper flyers from outside organizations will no longer be distributed.  Peachjar charges a nominal fee for this service that is typically much less than the cost to copy, bundle and deliver paper flyers to each school.

• Register as an Enrichment 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.  If your flyer is denied, an explanation will be provided and credits will be refunded
to your Peachjar account.

All flyers to be distributed must:

  • Support the basic educational mission of the district, directly benefit the students, or be of intrinsic value to the students or their parents/guardians.


Flyers will NOT be approved that:

  • Are lewd, obscene, libelous, or slanderous.
  • Incite students to commit unlawful acts, violate school rules, or disrupt the orderly operation of the schools.
  • Promote any particular political interest, candidate, party, or ballot measure, unless the candidates or advocates from all sides are provided the opportunity to present their views to the students during school hours or during events scheduled pursuant to the Civic Center Act.
  • Proselytize or position the district on any side of a controversial issue.
  • Discriminate against, attack or denigrate any group on the basis of gender, race, age, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, disability or other unlawful consideration.
  • Promote the use or sale of materials or services that are illegal or inconsistent with school objectives, including, but not limited to, materials or advertisements for tobacco, intoxicants, and movies or products unsuitable for children.
  • Solicit funds or services for an organization, with the exception of solicitations authorized in Board policy.
  • Conflict with programs offered by Barrow County School System.
  • Barrow County School System does not disseminate information to schools/students regarding church and/or religious organizations. Events sponsored in part or in whole by a church or religious organization may be considered for approval.
