    Your flyer will be automatically submitted to the Fountain-Fort Carson School District 8 Communications Department and/or designees for approval. Your flyer will be reviewed and the material approved or denied based on the standards below.

    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.

    MISCELLANEOUS

    Peachjar charges a fee for this service that is typically much less than the cost to copy, sort and deliver paper flyers to each school. As part of the fee, Peachjar provides organizations with support in flyer design, making many professional-quality design templates available to organizations. Customer service for participating organizations is provided by Peachjar at 877-123-4567.
