Flier Policies

Guidelines for Using Our Electronic Flier System

Lexington County School District One works with schools, school support groups, school organizations, and community organizations to make information about not-for-profit activities or services and enrichment opportunities available to families —providing their material meets our standards.

The district does not distribute fliers directly to students. The district makes approved electronic fliers available to parents through Peachjar and refers to Peachjar all requests from groups or individuals who would like to make their information about not-for-profit activities or enrichment services available to Lexington County School District One students.

Each school has its own Peachjar site where parents can find and view fliers. Parents can go to a school’s webpage and click on the Peachjar logo to see the approved fliers for that school.

Approved electronic fliers, information or brochures with school and district announcements, newsletters, messages and information about not-for-profit (501c3) organizations’ (such as Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, YMCA, Little League, Lexington One Community Coalition, and others) activities or services; school activities or services such as PTA/PTO, School Improvement Council or Booster Club notices; and enrichment opportunities such as after-school or summer activities by schools such as athletic camps, Little League, Riverbanks Zoo, Clemson University or Mad Science are delivered to parents by email and posted on the school’s Peachjar website.

The district does not approve the distribution of a flier by a “for profit” organization even if that organization is offering something “free” to our students nor does the district approve fundraising only efforts from nonprofit groups.

No commercial publications are posted or distributed unless their purpose is to further a school activity, such as graduation, class pictures, or class rings or to offer a pre-approved enrichment opportunity to our students such as a science camp.


About Peachjar

Peachjar manages this flier distribution on behalf of our schools using the latest electronic communication technology. Here’s a link to a short informational video.

Once an organization’s flier is posted to a school’s Peachjar site, the flier is delivered to all parents’ email addresses as an embedded image, not a link. This means parents can immediately see the flier and click through the flier.

If a parent deletes the email and later wants some information from that flier, the parent can view that flier online by going to the school’s Peachjar website.

Schools, school support groups, and booster clubs can usually post and distribute their fliers, newsletters, and important information at no cost. If a flier describes an activity or event with a fee, both of the following criteria must be met in order the flier to be posted at no charge.

  • The activity/participation fee must be made payable to the school, school district or the school’s authorized parent group.
  • The activity must be conducted by school/district staff, students or parent group volunteers.

Community organizations (non-profit) may post a flyer without charge through Peachjar (subject to school/district approval) provided the flier contains information about a community event that is held without charge to attendees and does not lead to a participation fee or serve as an enticement to buy products or services.

Community organizations and enrichment providers (both for-profit and non-profit) are subject to Peachjar’s service fee when they post a flier to promote/announce an activity or event with a participation fee. This also happens when the flier describes an event that is held without charge for the purpose of enticing attendees to buy products or services or to participate in a fee-based program or activity. Peachjar charges outside organizations a fee for this service that is typically much less than the cost the organization would pay to make printed copies of the flier.


What Fliers Meet District Criteria?

Fliers that meet the district’s criteria are fliers that let parents know about:

  • Programs or events held within Lexington County;
  • Activities that benefit our students, help develop character, etc.;
  • Programs or events that are youth-related or related to youth education;
  • Fliers that come from approved youth character-building organizations;
  • Fliers that pertain to activities of the community recreation program;
  • Fliers that do not promote nor discourage religion;
  • Fliers nondenominational in nature;
  • Fliers that contain school names only as part of the location information for events held at schools and in no way imply events are endorsed by school or district; and
  • Fliers that do not disrupt the educational process, violate the rights of others, include material that is defamatory, invade the privacy of others, infringe on a copyright, or are obscene, vulgar or indecent.

what information must be on the flier?

  • The sponsoring organization’s full name,
  • The sponsoring organization’s address,
  • The sponsoring organization’s email address,
  • The sponsoring organization’s telephone number,
  • The sponsoring organization’s web address, and
  • The sponsoring organization’s non-profit 501c3 status, governmental educational nonprofit institution status, etc.

How do I post a flier?

Peachjar manages flier distribution on behalf of our schools.

To post a flier, organizations just register at www.peachjar.com, select the desired school(s) and upload the flier. The flier is then automatically submitted to the district or school for approval. Once approved, that flier is delivered to parents by email as an embedded image (not a link) and posted online. Once a flier is posted to a school’s Peachjar site, parents can also view the flier by clicking on the Peachjar logo on the school’s website. 

Community organizations and enrichment providers (both for-profit and non-profit) are subject to Peachjar’s service fee when they post a flier to promote/announce an activity or event with a participation fee. This also happens when the flier describes an event that is held without charge for the purpose of enticing attendees to buy products or services or to participate in a fee-based program or activity.

Peachjar charges outside organizations a fee for this service that is typically much less than the cost they paid in the past to copy fliers.

Organizations can see pricing and discount information on Peachjar’s website or contact Peachjar Customer Service for pricing and discount information at 858.997.2117.
