Material Distribution / Promotion to Students

CUSD 308 strives to be more environmentally friendly, embrace innovative technology and maintain fiscal responsibility through the transition from paper distribution to electronic flyer delivery via Peachjar. The district cooperates with community groups and organizations that sponsor activities of an educational/enrichment nature for students by distributing materials electronically through the Peachjar system. Paper flyers from outside organizations are no longer distributed.
All materials must meet the requirements of Board Policy 8-25: Advertising and Distributing Materials in Schools Provided by Non-School Related Entities. All board policies can be found under the BOE section of the website.
For an overview regarding submitting a digital flyer(s) through Peachjar, read more below.
