ELECTRONIC FLYER APPROVAL AND DISTRIBUTION PROCESS
Effective January 6, 2016, HUSD will transition to a new electronic form distribution program called Peachjar, transitioning from distributing paper flyers to electronic flyers at school sites. Flyers from community organizations will be distributed through email and posted on school websites. This is part of our ongoing efforts to be more environmentally-friendly by reducing the amount of paper copies.
Community Groups and Outside Organizations
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. Paper flyers from outside organizations will no longer be distributed.
- Visit www.peachjar.com
- Register as an Enrichment / Community Org. (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.
NOTE: If you are a parent group at one of our HUSD schools, these instructions do not apply.
Outside organization will be able to make available a small stack of paper flyers, but they will need to FIRST have it uploaded and approved with Peachjar before doing so. Once the flyer is uploaded to Peachjar and it appears on school websites this will act as approval. The organization can then give the flyers to the school office, where they will be made available at or near the front counter. No paper copies will be given to teachers or staff to distribute to students for taking home.
IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: The following disclaimer must appear on the flyer:
"This event/activity/program (choose one) is not sponsored by the Hayward Unified School District. Approval to distribute flyers is a community service rather than an endorsement." Your flyer will be automatically submitted to the District for review and approval. For questions or more information on the flyer process, contact Megan Wies at 510-784-2600 ext. 72640. Outside organizations will need to accept this disclaimer upon requesting approval from Peachjar.
