Flyer Distribution in Modesto City Schools

Modesto City Schools Board Policy (BP 1315) and Administrative Regulation (AR 1315) allow community organizations to distribute materials to students through school sites using the district's flyer distribution system.

Materials (digital content and / or flyers) may not be sectarian, partisan, or denominational publications and may not solicit funds.

How can my organization's content be distributed?

The flyer distribution process can be started by completing our flyer distribution form. Once approved, organizations will receive a notification.

Modesto City Schools will post approved submissions through ParentSquare, which utilizes text, e-mail, and mobile app notifications to parents and guardians of our district. Flyers will also be posted publicly on the district's Community Flyers page.

Your organization is responsible for creating the digital flyer.
