Pittsburg Unified School District (PUSD) cooperates with community groups and organizations that offer activities for our youth. PUSD distributes materials electronically via Peachjar. As part of our efforts to be more environmentally responsible, we are in the process of transitioning from paper to electronic flyer delivery. Flyers will be distributed through email and posted to a webpage. The following information provides instructions and protocols for using the Peachjar electronic flyer system. Peachjar pricing information.
To request flyer approval, follow the steps below. Once approved, your flyer will be emailed to all parents and posted online.
- Ensure that your flyer meets the PUSD Flyer Approval requirements above.
- Go to www.peachjar.com
- Register with Peachjar as an Enrichment Provider (account type)
- Select desired schools
- Upload your flyer to Peachjar for approval (Flyers must include an English and Spanish version).
Your flyer will automatically be submitted to the District for approval. District staff will review the material and approve or deny based on the standards described below. Please allow up to one week for the district office to approve or deny your flyer for weekly distribution.
Organizations are subject to Peachjar’s $25 service fee when a flyer is posted to promote an activity or event with a participation fee. Peachjar's service fee also applies to activities that are held without charge but may entice participants to join a fee-based program, or purchase products or services (e.g. a soccer league that offers free clinics).
Peachjar’s service fee will be waived in Pittsburg Unified School District when a local community organization is promoting a free event that does not entice participants to join a fee-based program, or purchase products or services.
The District realizes the switch to Peachjar may be difficult for some community organizations. For organizations that do not want to participate with Peachjar, the District will allow organizations to print a small stack of flyers and drop them off at school offices. However, the flyers must still go through Nubia Aguilar in the District Office for an approval process and they will require a District stamp.
