School & Community Services
School and Community Services provides a variety of integrated services including strategic internal and external communications, multimedia such as web, audio, video, printed publications, marketing, and advertising.
The Department manages a comprehensive communications & marketing plan that builds, promotes, and supports two-way mutually beneficial relationships between the Waterford School District and the Waterford Community. The Department strives to provide accurate and timely information to the public it serves regarding achievement, District initiatives and programs, budget priorities, bond and millage campaigns, and special events. School & Community Services also provides many integrated services that benefit the schools and community. Those services are, but not limited to, health & wellness, facility usage, pool & fitness centers, performing arts centers, and community education programming.
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.
Submit a Flyer for Distribution
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 Peachjar Website
- Register as an Enrichment/Community Organization (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. Please contact Kellie Brosamer with Peachjar with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
