Flyer Distribution Process

Policy

In 2010, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education adopted a policy to regulate the distribution and display of flyers in schools. You can view the policy and related requirements here.

Distribution Methods

As part of our efforts to enhance communication with our families and employees and be more environmentally friendly, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools has updated the flyer distribution process to include electronic flyer distribution.  We are working with a service provider called Peachjar to deliver eflyers to our schools, families and staff.

Submission and Approval Periods

Requests for electronic flyer distribution can be submitted for consideration at any time during the school year.  Requests for paper flyer distribution can only be submitted for consideration during two designated submission periods each school year.  Upcoming submission dates are:

  • October 10-21, 2016 (Fall)
  • February 6-17, 2017 (Spring)
  • October 9-20, 2017 (Fall)

Proof of nonprofit status is required for all flyer distribution requests.

Submission Process

Electronic Flyers:

  • Go to peachjar.com
  • Register as an Enrichment/Community Organization (account type).
  • Upload your flyer for approval.  Please note that all flyers must include the following disclaimer:
    • CMS Disclaimer: The information in this flyer is neither endorsed by nor necessarily reflective of the views of the Board of Education, the District or any CMS school.
  • Flyers that are submitted via Peachjar are automatically sent to CMS Communications for review.  Flyers will be reviewed to ensure they meet the Board of Education policy requirements.
  • Approved flyers will be distributed electronically to the desired school(s).  They will be made available to parents and staff via email and the school website(s).

Community organizations/enrichment providers pay a small service fee to use Peachjar.  This fee is typically much less than the cost of printing and delivering paper flyers to schools.

 

Paper Flyers:

If your organization is unable to use the electronic flyer distribution process, please contact CMS Communications at (980) 344-0001 or email a.rothrock@cms.k12.nc.us for information on how to submit and distribute a paper flyer.
