E-Flyer Distribution

Peachjar button  
Victoria ISD has transitioned to e-flyer distribution through Peachjar! Our goal is to continue streamlining and improving our communications processes.
                               
What is Peachjar:

The Peachjar system manages electronic flyer distribution on behalf of Victoria ISD as a resource for our parents to stay more connected to both our internal support organizations (like PTA and Booster Clubs) and to approved non-profit community partners. This will allow the District to connect with parents about important news and information and to connect parents with youth-oriented activities and programs in our community.

 

E-flyers about events and activities happening on our campuses and within the district will be posted right to the campus websites. Parents can also get flyers right to their email inbox and can conveniently "click through" to register for events and activities. Parents can even customize how often to receive the emails and from which schools.

Examples of flyers and other documents distributed through Peachjar:

  • Back-to-School Night & Open House flyers
  • Program announcements
  • Letters from the principal
  • School newsletters
  • Fundraisers
  • Weekly events calendar

The Peachjar e-flyer service is provided as an opportunity for non-profit organizations to share information that is supportive to VISD parents and students and is not a source of advertising revenue for the district.

To request flyer approval:

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 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:
  • Materials shall include the name of the person or organization sponsoring the distribution.
  • No materials will be approved for distribution during the first full week of school, the week prior to Winter holidays, the first week of Spring semester, the week of STAAR testing, of the final two weeks of school.
  • If at any time it is determined that previous flyers presented for approval contained false information or did not accurately represent the intent of the program, the approval of future flyers from the requesting organization will be jeopardized.
  • Material is in accordance with School Board Policy GKDA(LOCAL).
  • All flyers MUST have the following disclaimer statement located at the bottom of the material.
    Disclaimer should be in BOLD with CAPITALIZED LETTERS in a 12 point font or larger.

    "THIS ORGANIZATION AND ITS ACTIVITIES ARE NOT RELATED TO OR SPONSORED
    BY THE VICTORIA INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT"

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: These instructions do not apply for any parent group at one of our VISD schools. There is also no cost for school/parent groups.

 

Paper copies:

Outside organizations will be able to make available a small stack of paper flyers, but they will need to FIRST have the flyer uploaded and approve through Peachjar before doing so. Once the flyer is uploaded to Peachjar and it appears on the school website, 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.

Flyer approval does not constitute endorsement. Approval simply means the material has been reviewed and meets the guidelines for district-wide electronic distribution. VISD administration reserves the right to rescind approval to any organization or person if a complaint is received or the organization or person is found to be in violation of instructions.
