Peachjar is helping schools across the nation improve their parent and community engagement. Glendale Elementary School District School District 40 has successfully implemented Peachjar’s innovative system for distributing school flyers electronically.
“Implementation of the Peachjar system helps us to meet our objective as a school district to be a good environmental steward and neighbor,” stated Jim Cummings, director of communications for Glendale Elementary School District 40. “Not only are we contributing to a healthier environment, we’re helping our business partners reach a greater number of people at a much reduced cost to them, and to our school district.”
Glendale Elementary School District 40 expects to eliminate the need to print nearly 1.3 million sheets of paper per year - that's 151 trees. Additionally, the school district no longer incurs the administrative burden and costs associated with paper flyer distribution.
Glendale Elementary School District 40 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 register 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 schools across the nation improve their school-to-home communication by delivering eflyers directly to parents. Check out Peachjar’s one-minute animatic to learn more
