Peachjar improves school-to-home communication for the Wake County Public School System (WCPSS) by streamlining school flyer distribution and delivering eflyers directly to parents.

Peachjar, a San Diego based technology company, is helping schools across North America improve their parent and community engagement. WCPSS has successfully implemented Peachjar’s innovative system for distributing school flyers electronically.
“Our schools have embraced Peachjar and its capacity to save time and resources, two precious commodities for every school,” stated Michael Yarbrough, senior administrator for communications for WCPSS. “More than 70 of our schools are using this great service, and more are coming online.”
By using this new system, WCPSS expects to eliminate the need to print roughly 24 million flyers per year – nearly 3,000 trees. Additionally, the school district no longer incurs the administrative burden and costs associated with paper flyer distribution.
WCPSS implemented Peachjar’s system for free since local enrichment and community organizations across the nation pay a small service fee to distribute their school-approved eflyers and post them online. These eflyers are sent directly to parents who see them as visually engaging images right on their smartphone or computer screen. Parents click to sign up their children for youth sports, enrichment programs, and community events.
Peachjar was founded in 2011 in response to the billions of paper flyers being carried home from schools each year in children’s backpacks. The company has helped schools across North America improve their school-to-home communication by delivering eflyers directly to parents. Check out Peachjar’s one-minute animatic to learn more.
