Jeffco Public Schools began using the Peachjar digital flyer delivery system in April 2019 to offer families the opportunity to access school district and community information via email and webpages. Detailed information on Peachjar usage is at the bottom of this page.

Jeffco Public Schools families receive an email every other Friday with Peachjar information. They may opt out of the email at any time.  The webpages with flyers are accessible at all times to the public. 

Flyers entered in to the district system will be distributed via email then posted to the site on the following 2019 dates:

  • June 7 & 21
  • July 12 & 26
  • Aug. 9 & 23
  • Sept. 13 & 27
  • Oct. 11 & 25
  • Nov. 8 & 22
  • Dec. 13

Schools may also use Peachjar to send flyers to families at their school. They may do so on any day of their choosing. This is only for school flyers; outside groups must use the district distribution.

Peachjar is a communications platform that streamlines school-to-home information. Additionally, by using Peachjar, our schools and community partners will save paper and reduce copy costs while reducing a significant administrative burden from principals and office staff.

With the Peachjar e-flier program, schools and district departments send e-fliers directly to family members’ email inboxes and also post them on school websites for easy access. Fliers may be accessed by clicking on the Peachjar link on each school's website.

School and school district-approved e-fliers will keep families informed about upcoming school activities, programs, and events as well as opportunities in the community.

All e-flyers undergo an approval process.  Family members can be assured that only vetted and approved communication relevant to students and families will reach inboxes.

2020 Schedule
Jan. 3, 17, 31; Feb. 14, 28; Mar. 13, 27; April 10, 24; May 8, 22

Information for Families

No action is required by family members. Family members will receive a welcome email from Peachjar that includes a username and password. This will give you the opportunity to manage your account and flyer delivery preferences. You do not need to login to receive or view school digital flyers.

To ensure smooth delivery of future emails, we suggest you add school@peachjar.com (or your district’s selected "from email address") to your email contacts. When you receive your first e-flyer, be sure to click "always display images."

This system is used exclusively for distribution of school-approved flyers. Neither the district nor Peachjar will share or use email addresses for any other purpose. There is also a button to unsubscribe from Peachjar emails. Keep in mind, if you unsubscribe, you may miss out on important information about school events and opportunities for your child.

Thank you for supporting our efforts to ensure parents are well-informed about school programs, activities, and events.

 

Information for Community Organizations

The traditional practice of sending hard copy flyers home in student backpacks is not as effective in today’s digital world. Therefore, beginning in Spring 2019, Jeffco Public Schools will begin sending digital flyers directly to families via email. The district has contracted with Peachjar to provide this digital e-flyer service.

Peachjar provides an innovative flyer management system that sends approved flyers directly to family members' email inbox and posts them online on all school websites. With Peachjar, families can easily find and view flyers, and take action immediately to sign up for activities and events. 

If you are a community organization and wish to distribute flyers to Jeffco Public Schools families, you may register for a Peachjar account as a "Program Provider" and upload your flyer for distribution to your desired schools. Peachjar does charge a fee to for profit Program Providers and for events that generate funding for nonprofit entities, but it is significantly less than the cost of printing flyers for our 86,000 students. The cost is $25 per school, per flyer, per month with options to purchase bulk rate packages. Peachjar accepts payment with a credit card or through a PayPal account.

Free events, classes, or programs are free to promote through Peachjar. See the Peachjar site for details.

The process to register with Peachjar is easy:

  1. Visit www.Peachjar.com and click 'Sign Up.'
  2. Enter email address and choose 'Program Provider' as your Account Type.
  3. Enter User Information and Business Information (first and last name, username, password, org name, category, org type, and location).
  4. Any questions about Peachjar or for help setting up an account, contact Peachjar customer service at (858) 997-2117 x3 or email support@peachjar.com.
Once you create a Peachjar account, you upload flyers for approval by the district’s Communications Office. Please be aware of the district’s Guidelines for Online Flyer Distribution. Most importantly, an organization requesting flyer distribution must do so in accordance with Board Policy KFD and other applicable policies. The district and schools reserve the right to deny any request.

Guidelines for Online Flyer Distribution

  1. The organization requesting the use of the flyer distribution system must be the lead organization hosting, managing, and collecting any fees for the event, activity, or program being promoted.

  2. The organization will visit Peachjar to register as an "Enrichment or Community Organization."

    a. The activity or event must be an appropriate educational or enrichment activity geared to students in Preschool to 12th grade. 

    b. The organization will upload the flyer they request to be considered for distribution.

    c. The organization will select the school(s) they would like the flyer to be distributed to.

    d.  Flyers will remain active for 30 days after the distribution date.

    e.  The organization will choose “1” distribution. If another distribution is requested, the flyer must be uploaded a second time.

    f.  The Distribution Target Date must be prior to the next distribution date.

  3. When a flyer is uploaded as described above, they are automatically submitted to the district for review. The district will determine if the request conforms to district policies, including, but not limited to district policy KFD. The District typically reviews flyer posting requests within 7-14 working days, excluding holidays and breaks. Please submit your flyers well in advance for optimal promotion opportunities.

  4. Organizations will be notified via email when the flyer is approved or if there are questions or concerns.

    Please note that all flyers from community organizations must include the following disclaimer:

    "Jeffco Public Schools neither endorses nor sponsors the organization or activity represented in this material. The District accepts no liability or responsibility for the program/activity. The distribution or display of this material is provided as a community service."

  5. The district may elect to disallow flyer distributions from organizations or individuals that violate these flyer guidelines. 
    Jeffco Public Schools does not approve the distribution of materials, projects, activities, or programs that:
  • Publicize, promote, or disparage a particular church, synagogue, temple, mosque, or other house of worship, or any religious organization or religious viewpoint; or
  • Publicize, promote, or disparage a particular political party, political organization, candidate for office, ballot initiative, or political viewpoint; or
