    Your flyer will be automatically submitted to the Fountain-Fort Carson School District 8 Communications Department and/or designees for approval.

    APPROVAL GUIDELINES

     

    Fountain-Fort Carson School District 8 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:

    1. Information from non-school-sponsored youth sports and recreation activities offered in/to our community.
    2. Information from municipal, government agencies in our community that are not political in nature.
    3. Community organizations providing educational or enrichment services that may directly benefit FFC8 students.

    Flyers will not be approved if they are defamatory, obscene, or a solicitation in nature; if the literature promotes alcohol, tobacco, or drug use, or it is likely to cause a substantial disruption to the educational process/environment. Please also refer to School Board Policy KHC for further reference on materials that will not be approved for distribution.

    Fountain-Fort Carson School District 8 does not endorse any particular group that distributes literature through Peachjar. Community flyers are approved once a week on Tuesdays.

     

    ADA COMPLIANCE ON PEACHJAR

     

    Peachjar's digital content complies with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 A & AA standards. These are the guidelines by which the Office of Civil Rights requires the school district's digital content to comply with. This means emails sent to parents through Peachjar, and each school's Peachjar flyer page, are now compatible with screen readers and other assistive technologies. 

    In order to accomplish this, the text from submitted flyers will be copied into an editable text box. For best results, Peachjar recommends your flyer meet the following requirements:

    1. Be 1 - 4 pages in length (required). Learn more about how to send long flyers.
    2. Contain clear and legible text in size 12 point font or larger.
    3. Not be a scanned or copied document.

    Flyers that do not meet number 2 or 3 can be distributed, but since the software may not recognize the text, you may be required to copy/paste or type the text of the flyer into the description box. Additionally, please note that embedded links within your flyer will no longer be supported. Learn more about including links with your flyer.

     

    MISCELLANEOUS

As part of the fee, Peachjar provides organizations with support in flyer design, making many professional-quality design templates available to organizations.
