Encinitas Union School District

Instructions for Outside Organizations

The Encinitas Union School District (EUSD) cooperates with community groups and organizations that sponsor activities of an educational/enrichment nature for students by distributing materials electronically via Peachjar to district families. As part of our efforts to be more environmentally friendly, embrace innovative technology and maintain fiscal responsibility, we have transitioned from paper to electronic flyer delivery.

To request flyer approval, follow the steps below. Once approved, your flyer will be emailed to all parents and posted online.

1. IMPORTANT: Read the EUSD Flyer Approval Policies in the next section below.
2. Visit www.peachjar.com
3. Register as an Enrichment Provider (account type)
4. Upload your flyer for approval

Your flyer will automatically be submitted to the district office. District staff will review the material and approve or deny based in part on the standards described below. Peachjar charges outside organizations a fee for this service that is typically much less than the cost to copy and deliver paper flyers to each school.

NOTE: If you are a parent group at one of our EUSD schools, these instructions do not apply. See the school’s Office Manager for details.
