In October 2016, Barrow County School System transitioned from paper flyers to electronic flyers via the Peachjar system. This transition was made to help reduce staff time, save money, and continue our efforts to be an environmentally conscious school system. View BCSS Peachjar Flyers.
You can opt out of receiving emails at any time, or select the frequency of email notifications. The flyers can always be viewed by clicking on the Peachjar button on your school's website. This system is used exclusively for distribution of school-approved flyers. Your email address will not be shared or used for any other purpose. Thank you for helping us save time, money, and lots of trees!
Our school system is willing to share information from local businesses, community groups and organizations that sponsor activities of an educational/enrichment nature for students and/or staff by distributing materials electronically via Peachjar. As part of our effort to be more environmentally friendly, embrace innovative technology, and maintain fiscal responsibility, we utilize electronic flyer delivery only. We no longer distribute paper flyers or offer cards.
To submit a digital flyer, follow the steps below. Once approved by the BCSS staff, your flyer will be distributed to the audience that you have selected. You have the ability to segment the audience by grade level and school. You also have the ability to send information to BCSS staff through Peachjar. You will also receive metrics on the success of your flyer.
Please note that BCSS only approves and sends flyers on Fridays (as of 5/21/2019).
Peachjar charges a nominal fee for this service. For specific pricing information, visit their website. It is based on the frequency and reach of your campaign.
