Procedural guidelines for approving e-flyers
To be publicized through our schools, all activities, events, materials and opportunities must relate directly to children and families and must comply with the District's advertising policy. The District reserves the right to deny permission for the posting or distribution of materials that are not consistent with the best interests of students and families or that directly compete with District programs or services.
To submit a flyer for electronic distribution:
- Organizations requesting approval for distribution of materials must do so through Peachjar.com. Click Register in the top right corner to create an account. After registering, click on Upload a Flyer under the My Flyers heading. (Video Tutorial)
- Approved flyers (other than those sponsored by a Minnetonka School District program or Minnetonka Community Education) must have this statement on the flyer/brochure: This program is not run by Minnetonka Public Schools. Neither the school nor the District endorse this activity, but they provide equal access to sharing the information as required by federal law.
- Flyers must be submitted as a PDF, letter size, portrait or vertical layout. Colorful flyers with few words and large fonts that include a website address for more information are most effective. Word templates are available on Peachjar.com
