e-flyers in CISD
Community ISD is launching a new e-flyer initiative through Peachjar. In the past, our schools sent home approved flyers in elementary students' backpacks and secondary students were asked to come by the office and pick them up. As part of our efforts to embrace innovative technology, we are moving from paper to digital flyer delivery. Now these same important announcements will be delivered directly to a student's parent or guardian's email. Gone are the days of lost information and flyers crumpled at the bottom of backpacks or left in a desk (we hope)!
With our Peachjar eflyer program, the eflyers will be sent directly to parents' email inboxes as well as posted on the school websites for easy access. All flyers can be found in our mobile app as well. There will also be a peachjar button (see below) on each campus website so that flyers are accessible for anyone just by clicking on the link. External community partners can click on the button below for more information on how to send electronic flyers.
School and district approved eflyers will keep you informed about upcoming school activities, programs, and events. No need to sign up, all families and staff will automatically be enrolled at the launch date of the program in September: check your email lfor an initial notification which will include your login and password. After the notification email, flyers will automatically be delivered, but for parents who wish to change the frequency or type of delivery, Peachjar offers a login portal to manage parent account settings.
Digital flyers will be sent directly to parents who see them as visually engaging images right on their smartphone or computer screen. Additionally, all flyers will be posted to each school’s website through a peachjar flyers button located in the "announcements" section. Parents will be able to click to register their children for youth sports, enrichment programs, and community events.
By using this new system, Community ISD expects to eliminate the need to print roughly 280,000 sheets of paper per year– nearly 34 trees! Additionally, the school district no longer incurs the administrative burden and costs associated with paper flyer distribution.
