Electronic Flyer Approval & Distribution
Effective February 1, 2018, Oxnard School District began using a new electronic flyer distribution program called Peachjar. We began distributing electronic flyers at our school sites and the district office. Flyers from community organizations will be distributed through email and posted on school websites. This is part of our ongoing efforts to be more environmentally-friendly by reducing the amount of paper copies.
Information for Parents
Important information from your child’s school can now be viewed right from your smartphone using the Oxnard School District mobile app! Go to Google Play or the Apple Store to download the OSD app. Flyers are also posted on each school’s website and can be accessed by clicking the Peachjar button on your school’s homepage. Additionally, if you’d like to begin receiving flyers delivered directly to your email account to stay up to date with your child’s school, please register by doing the following:
- Visit the Peachjar page at www.peachjar.com
- Click"My Account" in the top right corner
- Click "Register Now"
- Select account type “Parent/Family Provide”
- Enter requested information; choose your school and/or district you wish to follow
Information for Community Organizations Wanting to Distribute Flyers
Our district partners 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 Community Organization
- Upload your flyer for approval
Your flyer will be automatically submitted to the district office for approval by the Public Information Officer. Please allow up to 48 hours for the district office to approve or deny your flyer for distribution. Your flyer will be reviewed and either approved or denied based on the standards set forth by the district. Peachjar charges a fee for this service that is typically much less than the cost to copy and deliver paper flyers to each school. For questions regarding the fee charged to community organizations, please contact Jenna Davis, District Account Manager for Peachjar, at (858) 997-2117, ext. 107 or email email@example.com.
NOTE: If you are a parent group (i.e. PTA, etc.) at one of our OSD schools, these instructions do not apply.
PAPER COPIES OF FLYERS
Outside community organizations will be able to make available a small stack of paper flyers, but the flyer will still need to FIRST be uploaded and approved with Peachjar before doing so. Once the flyer is uploaded to Peachjar and it appears on school websites this will act as approval. The community organization can then give the flyers to the school office, where they will be made available at or near the front counter. No paper copies will be given to teachers or staff to distribute to students to take home.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: THE FOLLOWING DISCLAIMER MUST APPEAR ON THE FLYER:
"This event/activity/program is not sponsored by the Oxnard School District. Approval to distribute flyers is a community service rather than an endorsement."
Your flyer will be automatically submitted to the District for review and approval. For questions or more information on the flyer process, contact Letitia Austin, OSD Public Information Officer at (805) 385-1501, ext. 2129. Outside organizations will need to accept this disclaimer upon requesting approval from Peachjar.

If you are not receiving emails from Peachjar, there are two possible reasons for this:1. Your current email address is incorrect and/or is not on file with your school. Please notify your school office.2. The Peachjar emails are going into your spam folder or you can't see the images in the email. To prevent the digital flyers from going into your spam folder, add “firstname.lastname@example.org” to your email contacts. When you receive your first e-flyer, be sure to click “always display images.”
Peachjar is used exclusively for distribution of school-approved flyers. Your email address will not be shared or used for any other purpose.
