PEACHJAR EFLYERS
Our district cooperates with approved community partners by posting eflyers online and distributing them electronically through our service provider, Peachjar. 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. Paper flyers from outside organizations will no longer be distributed.
- Visit www.peachjar.com
- Register as an Enrichment / Community Org. (account type).
- Upload your flyer for approval.

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

FACILITIES VISION TEAM 2018
Center School District is embarking upon a comprehensive vision for facilities and building upgrades. Partnering with Hollis + Miller, the district has formed a Facilities Vision Team comprised of teachers, parents, Hollis + Miller team members, maintenance personnel and administrators to help guide the facilities outlook.

The Facilities Vision Team is seeking community input on the future of Center School District’s buildings and facilities in the coming months. We've hosted two community forums and conducted an online survey of patrons and staff members. Findings from the online survey results can be found here.
