Community Flyers

Community Flyer Posting Guidelines

The District recognizes the need by community groups and/or individuals to post flyers to the community for purposes other than the conduct of the instructional program. 

Use of the District flyer website shall be supervised and controlled by the Superintendent or designee(s). Approval for any flyer distribution requests will be at the discretion of the superintendent or designee(s). The District reserves the right to deny any request.

The District will review the information presented and determine if the request follows District guidelines. The District typically reviews flyer posting requests within 7-10 working days, excluding holidays and district-observed breaks. Please submit your flyers well in advance for optimal promotion opportunities.

The District sets guidelines to ensure that individuals and groups receive equal consideration in determining access to the flyer distribution system. These guidelines, which are not an exhaustive or comprehensive list of instructions or regulations, include:

  1. An organization requesting flyer distribution must be a qualified nonprofit organization in good standing with the California Secretary of State and/or Internal Revenue Service.
  2. The organization requesting the flyer distribution system must be the lead organization hosting and managing the event and, therefore, must provide proof of its nonprofit status.
  3. The event must be free and open to the public.
  4. The information to be disseminated must adhere to one or more of the following categories: recreational, educational, charitable, or artistic interests of the school community or the discussion of matters of general or public interest.
  5. Flyers must be translated by the distributing individual or organization from English into the second language of the school community as appropriate.
  6. Flyers must not interfere, conflict, or compete with the educational programs of the District and must not disrupt the daily operations of the District or school instructional program.
  7. The posting and distribution of flyers must comply with all laws, rules, and regulations established by the State of California and District Board Policies and Administrative Regulations.
  8. The District does not permit the distribution of flyers for commercial purposes or purposes unrelated to the District's educational mission.
  9. The District will not permit the distribution of flyers that promote the following:
    1. Discrimination against, attack, or denigrate any group based on gender, race, age, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, disability, or other unlawful consideration.
    2. Violence, or perceived violence, of any kind
    3. Lewd, obscene, defamatory, or slanderous information
    4. Consumption of alcoholic beverages or the use of illegal drugs and/or narcotics
    5. Gambling, games of chance, or other related activities
    6. Promote, or perceived promotion, of an activity that would favor one particular denomination over another or favor all religions over non-religious practices (or vice versa)
    7. Promote, or perceived promotion, of any particular political interest, candidate, party, or ballot measure

Organizations or individuals that violate the guidelines may be banned from future distribution of promotional and/or informational materials.

School Sites

School sites are permitted to approve flyers for distribution to their school community at the discretion of site administration and follow all laws, rules, and regulations as established by the State of California and District Board Policies, Administrative Regulations, and these guidelines.

Schools can electronically post flyers on the school(s) website and distribute flyers to promote school newsletters, fundraisers, plays, etc.

Schools that would like to request flyer distribution for events and programs appropriate for an audience larger than their particular school community may work with the District to request distribution. Please note that fundraisers are limited to the school that they benefit. If fundraisers benefit a larger community, the District may consider distribution to the appropriate zone(s) or district-wide, as considered appropriate by the District.

School Connected Organizations (SCO) - PTA, Booster, Etc.

School Connected Organizations (SCO) may work directly with their school site administration to post electronically and email appropriate flyers to their school community. These flyers are posted at the site administrator's discretion, by all laws, rules, and regulations as established by the State of California and District Board Policies and Administrative Regulations.
