Flyer Guidelines

What is the Community Bulletin Board?

Our district utilizes a digital community Bulletin Board. This allows our schools and community organizations to save paper and reduce copy costs by thousands of dollars. It also helps flyers make it to parents directly through ClassTag, and not linger at the bottom of a backpack! All flyers from community organizations will be posted on this website and sent directly to parents! 

PBTISD Flyer Distribution Guidelines

All non-school flyers intended for distribution on school campuses or other District premises under this policy shall be submitted for prior review in accordance with the following:

  1. Materials shall include the name of the person or organization sponsoring the distribution.
  2. The flyer must give the date, time, and location details. 
  3. Flyers must be in an 8.5x11 PDF format. Other file formats will not be accepted.
  4. Flyer requests must be submitted no less than 1 week before the date of needed distribution.

The information on the flyer must serve to benefit students and must not interfere, conflict, or compete with programs offered by PBTISD. The district reserves the right to deny any request. For more information or questions please contact the Director of Media and Communications.

The District will consider approval and distribution of:

  • Flyers from non-profit organizations/companies with programs directly benefiting students, as well as state-supported organizations.
  • Flyers that promote an educational experience for students or parents, a healthy use of leisure time, and/or a special enrichment activity.
