Community Partners

Mankato Area Public Schools cooperates with community groups and organizations that sponsor activities of an educational/enrichment nature for students by distributing materials electronically via 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. Flyers are distributed through email and posted to a webpage. The following information provides instructions and the protocols for using the Peachjar electronic flyer system.

COMMUNITY PARTNERS
Our district cooperates with approved community partners by posting e-flyers 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. 

Mankato Area Public Schools 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.

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 are not distributed.

  1. IMPORTANT:  Flyers are only approved for non-profit groups located within the MAPS boundaries per board policy 904 
  2. Visit the Peachjar Registration Page
  3. Register as an Enrichment Provider (account type)
  4. Upload your flyer for approval
  5. Pay the service fee

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

Enrichment and community organizations are subject to Peachjar’s service fee when a flyer is posted to promote an activity or event with a participation fee. Peachjar's service fee also applies to activities that are held without charge, but may entice participants to join a fee-based program, or purchase products or services (e.g. a soccer league that offers free clinics). 

Peachjar’s service fee will be waived in Mankato Area Public Schools when a local community organization is promoting a free event that does not entice participants to join a fee-based program, or purchase products or services (Free-for-Free). Community Free (Free-for-Free) flyer distribution is limited to one posting every 30 days for up to 25 schools per organization. See: Peachjar Community Free Flyer Policy


PARENT GROUPS
Individual schools may post flyers for their site that promote information and events related to:

  • School
  • Parent-Teacher Organizations (PTOs),
  • Booster Clubs

This service is free. Each school site has its own Peachjar administrator who uploads these flyers. Please contact your school office if your flyer falls under one of the categories above.
