The Ritenour School District cooperates with community groups and organizations that sponsor activities of an educational/enrichment nature for students and staff by distributing materials electronically via Peachjar, an online service for schools. As part of our efforts to be more environmentally friendly, maintain fiscal responsibility and embrace the convenience of modern technology, we have moved from paper to digital flyer delivery. E-flyers are sent directly to parents’ email inboxes as well as posted online for easy access. Paper flyers from outside organizations will no longer be distributed.
(To find flyers posted to your school's Peachjar, look for this Peachjar button on every school website.)
To request flyer approval:
- Register an “Enrichment or Community Organization” account on Peachjar.
- Upload flyer for approval (in a PDF format).
- Ritenour staff will review the material and approve or deny based on the standards below.
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: Ritenour organizations such as PTOs and booster clubs should work with their building principal to upload flyers through school-based accounts at no charge.
The Ritenour School District approves the distribution of:
- Flyers that promote an educational experience for students or parents, a healthy use of leisure time and/or a special enrichment activity not duplicated by a Ritenour school or program
- Information targeted to staff that announces job-related activities and instructional opportunities related to the Ritenour School District curriculum
