FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Belle Vernon Area School District Ensures Better Community Engagement with Peachjar Belle Vernon Area School District improves school-to-home communication by implementing Peachjar to distribute school flyers directly to parents digitally.   August 18, 2016 -- Belle Vernon, PA Belle Vernon Area School District is committed to educational excellence and ensuring that parents stay informed about important activities and events that enhance their child’s life. In an effort to improve parent and community engagement, Belle Vernon Area is now using Peachjar to send digital flyers directly to parents. Peachjar is “a great opportunity to share information and serve our children and families more efficiently.” stated Dr. John Wilkinson, the Superintendent for the District. Digital flyers will be sent directly to parents who see them as visually engaging images right on their smartphone or computer screen. Additionally, all flyers will be posted to each school’s website. Parents will be able to click to register their children for youth sports, enrichment programs, and community events. By using this new system, the District expects to eliminate the need to print roughly 336,000 sheets of paper per year– nearly 40 trees. Additionally, the District no longer incurs the administrative burden and costs associated with paper flyer distribution.
