Distribution of Materials
Individuals seeking to post or distribute information in schools must submit materials to “Peachjar,” Phenix City School's electronic flyer service provider, at www.peachjar.com. Materials are then forwarded to the Superintendent’s office for approval.
Organizations must register with Peachjar and upload flyers for distribution to desired school(s). Once uploaded, the flyer is automatically routed to the district office for approval. Approved flyers are then emailed to all parents who have their email address on file at the district. The Superintendent's office shall review and approve all materials for conformance with district policies. All eflyers that are non-district or campus related and that are intended for distribution district-wide shall be submitted for prior review according to the following procedures:
- The flyer must be educational in nature, supporting the basic educational mission of PCS and/or benefiting the population of PCS in a positive manner.
- Approval of eflyers does not imply District endorsement of any identified product and/or of services. Approval for this flyer distribution does not imply endorsement, but is a courtesy service to the community.
- The District requests the flyers be uploaded in English and Spanish to support our diverse population.
- Contact information for the event and/or sponsors must be prominently displayed.
Using the standards below, the Office will approve or reject submitted material within two school days of the time the material is received. In reviewing the materials PCS will not distribute material if:
- The materials are obscene, vulgar, or otherwise inappropriate for the age and maturity of the audience.
- The materials endorse actions endangering the health or safety of students.
- The distribution of such materials would violate the intellectual property rights, privacy rights, or other rights of another person.
- The materials contain defamatory statements about public figures or others.
- The materials advocate imminent lawless or disruptive action and are likely to incite or produce such action.
- The materials include hate literature that scurrilously attacks ethnic, religious, or racial groups, and similar publications aimed at creating hostility and violence.
- The materials promote or is hostile to any religion; however, informational material of activities sponsored by a religious organization will not be denied so long as the material complies with other provisions of this regulation, and does not in itself pray or proselytize.
