Frequently Asked Questions
How is this different from my other electronic flyer communication tools?
Other flyer communication tools require you to upload flyers to the school/district website where your parents just see a series of links. Additionally, with other tools, you're stuck with a time-consuming, manual method of approving flyers from program providers.
Peachjar automates the entire process! A digital image of each flyer is sent directly to parents, not links. Digital flyers are posted online and removed automatically when they expire. Plus, Peachjar's digital flyer approval management system saves hours of time each week.
Do our parents need to register in order to receive digital flyers?
As a contract service provider, Peachjar provides instructions to districts to implement a secure protocol that enables digital flyer distribution via email. Upon launch, parents are automatically registered and receive a welcome email. Parents do not need to take action to begin receiving digital flyers unless your school district has informed you otherwise.
Will parents receive other digital flyers through this system?
The only flyers that parents receive are ones that have been approved by the school/district.
What if parents don’t want to receive digital flyers?
Parents can easily unsubscribe or change their delivery preferences.
How do parents see digital flyers?
District-approved digital flyers are emailed directly to parents’ inboxes as images. Additionally, parents can click on the Peachjar button located on their school’s homepage to view digital flyers.
What if some of our parents do not have internet access?
Research shows that many parents without internet access at home have other ways to go online. For example, many parents use a smartphone to go online through their cellular network or use/borrow a computer at work or a public library. Additionally, since schools are saving thousands of dollars each year with Peachjar, many districts use the savings to provide a parent resource computer in the front office of each campus that gives parents the ability to go online to view school flyers and other info on their school website. Finally, some schools choose to place a few paper flyers in their front office area.
How does Peachjar get paid if you don’t charge schools to distribute flyers?
Peachjar offers a variety of service plans. Our most popular plan enables districts to implement Peachjar at low cost since program providers pay a small service fee to use the system. The service fee is typically lower than the cost of copying and delivering paper flyers to your schools.
What if we have parents that don’t speak English?
Since Peachjar sends flyers digitally, there is no extra cost to distribute flyers with an additional page in another language. Additionally, Peachjar’s entire website can be viewed in Spanish, French, Italian or German by selecting “Google Translate” at the bottom of the homepage.
Can we send digital newsletters?
Yes! A big advantage of Peachjar is the ability to send colorful, multi-page digital flyers without wasting tons of paper.
How soon do parents receive digital flyers once approved?
The default flyer delivery frequency is daily. Parents can change their delivery preference to immediately, daily, or weekly.
Can we send all our flyers to parents in a single email on the same day each week?
Yes! School and district staff can schedule the digital flyers they create for release on a designated day. Those digital flyers will be grouped and delivered in a single email with the flyers distributed by program providers that are approved by district staff on the same designated day of the week.
What if a parent has children at different schools in the district?
Parents that have children attending different schools will automatically receive digital flyers from each school.
Can teachers get digital flyers delivered to their inbox, too?
Yes! Teachers and other school staff can register on Peachjar to receive digital flyers for their school.
How do I remove a digital flyer that I’ve already posted?
Your digital flyer is automatically removed at the end of the selected campaign duration. You may remove your digital flyer manually, by logging in to your Peachjar account, selecting My Account in the top right corner, then My Recent Flyers on the left hand menu, and clicking Delete under the school list for the flyer to be removed.
