Like many school districts across the nation, Cecil County Public Schools (CCPS) has discovered that the old practice of sending hard copy flyers home in student backpacks is not as effective in today’s digital world. As part of our ongoing commitment to be more environmentally-friendly and to ensure parents have quick and easy access to important information, we are transitioning to a digital flyer delivery system. As such, CCPS has contracted with Peachjar to provide a digital e-flyer service. Peachjar sends approved flyers directly to parents’ email inbox and posts them online on all school websites. With Peachjar, parents can easily find and view flyers, and take action immediately to sign up for activities and events. All flyers may be accessed by clicking on the Peachjar button located at www.ccps.org or on individual school websites.
Peachjar has many benefits for parents, students, community organizations, and school staff, including:
- keeps parents informed about school activities and community events/resources
- saves trees by reducing the amount of paper printed
- removes the administrative burden from teachers, office staff, and volunteers of creating packets of printed materials
Peachjar Information for Parents
Cecil County Public Schools uses an electronic flyer communication and delivery tool called “Peachjar.” This tool allows schools and community organizations to save paper and reduce copy costs by thousands of dollars. It also reduces the number of flyers sent home in students’ backpacks. All flyers from community organizations will be posted on your school website and sent directly to your email.
To view school-approved flyers, simply click the Peachjar button on your school’s website homepage.
No action is required on your part. You will receive a welcome email from our service provider (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 school digital flyers.
To ensure smooth delivery of this communication, we suggest you add firstname.lastname@example.org 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. Your email address will not be shared or used 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
Many local school systems have discovered that the old practice of sending hard copy flyers home in student backpacks is not as effective in today’s digital world. Beginning in July 2018, Cecil County Public Schools (CCPS) will begin sending digital flyers directly to parents. CCPS has contracted with Peachjar to provide this digital e-flyer service.
Peachjar provides an innovative flyer management system that sends approved flyers directly to parents’ email inbox and posts them online on all school websites. With Peachjar, parents can easily find and view flyers, and take action immediately to sign up for activities and events. Paper flyers will no longer be distributed.
If you wish to distribute flyers to CCPS parents, you may register for a Peachjar account as a “Program Provider” and upload your flyer for distribution to your desired schools within CCPS. Peachjar charges a fee for this service that is typically less than the cost to copy and deliver paper flyers to each school.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.
Once you create a Peachjar account, you will upload flyers for approval by the district’s Public Information Office. Please be aware of the guidelines established in CCPS Regulation KJA-RA, DISTRIBUTION OF MATERIALS TO STUDENTS AND STAFF FROM NON-SCHOOL ENTITIES, which can be found at www.ccps.org/peachjar. Most importantly, an organization requesting flyer distribution must be a qualified 501 (c)3 non-profit with proof of non-profit status.
We want to ensure our transition to Peachjar is as easy as possible for our community partners. Please visit https://www.peachjar.com/faqs.html to set up your Peachjar account, and learn how to upload your flyers today.
