Peachjar, a San Diego based technology company, is helping schools across North America improve their parent and community engagement. Forest Grove School District has successfully implemented Peachjar’s innovative system for distributing school flyers electronically.
“Our families love receiving flyers through email and feel it’s a more efficient and reliable way to make sure information actually gets to parents,” stated Connie Potter, chief of staff for Forest Grove School District.
Since implementing the system in February 2015, Forest Grove schools have already eliminated the need to print over 170,000 sheets of paper, saving 20 trees. Additionally, the school district no longer incurs the administrative burden and costs associated with paper flyer distribution.
Forest Grove School District implemented Peachjar’s system for free since local enrichment and community organizations across the nation pay a small service fee to distribute their school-approved eflyers and post them online. These eflyers are sent directly to parents who see them as visually engaging images right on their smartphone or computer screen. Parents click to sign up their children for youth sports, enrichment programs, and community events.
Peachjar was founded in 2011 in response to the billions of paper flyers being carried home from schools each year in children’s backpacks. The company has helped thousands of schools across North America improve their school-to-home communication by delivering eflyers directly to parents.
