Flyer Distribution Guidelines

Flyer Distribution Guidelines

The Binghamton City School District cooperates with community groups  and organizations that sponsor activities of an educational/enrichment nature for students and staff by distributing relevant informational materials electronically.

As part of our efforts to be more environmentally friendly, embrace innovative technology, and maintain fiscal responsibility, we use digital flyer delivery via the Virtual Backpack powered by Peachjar, a free online service for schools.

Paper flyers from outside organizations are not distributed within the schools. Instead, e-flyers are emailed directly to parents’ inboxes, as well as posted online for easy access.

Once a flyer is posted to a school’s Virtual Backpack site, parents can view the flyer through the backpack logo on each individual school’s home page. Additionally, flyers will be delivered to all parents’ emails as an embedded image, not a link. This means parents will immediately see the flyer and be able to click through to an organization’s website to sign-up.

Peachjar charges a fee for this service that is typically less than the cost to copy and deliver flyers to each school. To post a flyer, register at www.peachjar.com, and select your desired school(s). The flyer is then automatically submitted to the district for approval. If approved, the flyer will be delivered to all parents and posted online.

All promotional materials must be submitted at least two weeks prior to distribution, if possible.

The following statement will be automatically placed on the bottom of each flyer: The Binghamton City School District does not endorse and is not responsible for any business, services or event advertised in this flyer.
