Flyer Distribution Guidelines

Approval Guidelines:

The Communications Department will evaluate the educational value of the materials or advertisements, the age or maturity of students in the intended audience, and whether the materials or advertisements support the mission and vision of the district. 

Flyers from outside community organizations that may be approved include:

  • Information from non-school sponsored youth sports and recreation activities offered in our community.

  • Information from municipal, government agencies in our community that are not political in nature.

  • Community organizations providing educational or enrichment services that may directly benefit students.
Flyers may be denied if the content includes: 
  • Information endorsing or promoting a specific religion, religious organization, political candidate, or position on a political issue.
  • Promotion of any content that is inconsistent with the mission and vision of Francis Howell School District.
  • Promotion of content that is in direct conflict with a service, program or function that is already provided by Francis Howell School District.

  • Any direct solicitation of money, except for dues for membership or fees for an activity announced in the material.

Note: Outside organizations must add the following disclaimer to all pages of their flyer in large, legible font:

"This program and its parent organization are not sponsored by, affiliated with, nor endorsed by the Francis Howell School District or its individual schools."

Note
: Paper copies of approved materials will not be distributed in any Francis Howell School District schools; all literature will be posted on Peachjar. However, District sports, activities, and organizations/clubs will be able to directly distribute flyers to students at the assigned feeder schools upon approval from the District level and school permission.


Flyer Approval Process:
To request flyer approval from FHSD, please follow the steps below. Once approved, your flyer will be emailed to all parents and posted online. Paper flyers from outside organizations will no longer be distributed. Before you move on, please read our flyer distribution guidelines (above). Then follow the directions below.

Visit www.peachjar.com
Register as an Enrichment / Community Organization (under account type)
Upload your flyer for approval

Your flyer will be automatically submitted to the District office. District staff will review the material and approve or deny based on posted standards. (Peachjar charges a fee to community organizations that are not school or District-sponsored activities for this service – which is typically much less than the cost to copy and deliver paper flyers to each school.)
