SASD to Implement Peachjar, a Digital Flyer Tool, on July 17th

Sparta Area School District improves school-to-home communication by implementing Peachjar to distribute school flyers directly to families digitally.  

 

The Sparta Area School District is committed to educational excellence and ensuring that parents stay informed about important activities and events that enhance their child’s life. In an effort to improve parent and community engagement, the SASD will begin using Peachjar, a digital flyer communication tool, on July 17th.

Digital flyers will be sent directly to parents who see them as visually engaging images right on their smartphone or computer screen. Additionally, all flyers will be posted to each school’s website. Parents will be able to click to register their children for youth sports, enrichment programs, and community events.

By using this new system, we expect to eliminate the need to print roughly one million sheets of paper per year– the equivalent of about 120 trees. Additionally, the school district no longer incurs the administrative burden and costs associated with paper flyer distribution.
