Distributing Community Information to Families
Salt Lake City School District has established guidelines for what types of community information can be distributed to our students and families. All materials submitted for review should support the board’s vision of Excellence and Equity: every student, every classroom, every day. The community information must provide recreational or enrichment opportunities for school-aged youth and be submitted from one of the following groups:
- parent-teacher organizations associated with our schools;
- designated business partners who have a formal partnership or memorandum of understanding with an individual school, with the district, or with the Salt Lake Education Foundation;
- local government programs; or
- organizations that have been approved as a school’s designated charitable fundraising beneficiary.
If the community information meets the criteria listed above, the district uses Peachjar to electronically distribute fliers or handouts to families. Materials must be submitted through www.peachjar.com for possible distribution.
There may be a cost associated with electronic flier distribution, but local community organizations may distribute their digital fliers to district schools at no cost when promoting a free event or activity that does not encourage participants to join a fee-based program and does not include the opportunity to purchase goods or services.
Such fee waivers are granted by Peachjar. Organizations can request a fee waiver by calling Peachjar at 858-997-2117 ext. 148. The communications and community relations department can provide additional information about requesting a fee waiver. Organizations are limited to one fee waiver every 30 days.
