Flyer Approval & Distribution


In the past, our schools sent flyers home in students’ backpacks. As part of our effort to be more environmentally sensitive and efficient, we have moved from paper to a digital flyer delivery system. As of November 4, 2015, e-flyers will be sent directly to parent email addresses and posted on each school's website for easy access. All flyers may be accessed by clicking on the Peachjar logo located on the homepage. 

Our schools will reduce copy and paper costs. In addition, the paperless delivery of school e-flyers removes a significant burden from teachers, office staff, and volunteers. School-approved e-flyers will keep you informed of upcoming school activities, programs, and events. And our students’ backpacks will be a little bit lighter!

Our district cooperates with approved community partners by posting eflyers 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.

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
  • Register as an Enrichment / Community Org. (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. 

If you have any questions about this new system, please contact the Superintendent's Office at (209) 574-5000 extension 202 or

Approval Guidelines for Flyer Distribution



You are being asked to complete the Marzano High Reliability Schools Family Survey to help guide decisions in Sylvan District.  Thank you for your participation.  


The survey window is open from September 11, 2017 through September 29, 2017.


Click on this link to access the Family Marzano High Reliability Schools Survey.


The results of the survey will be used by schools to celebrate those areas where they are achieving success, as well as select areas they would like to see improved.  The survey will be administered again in February 2018.


Background on Dr. Marzano and Marzano High Reliability Schools™ Framework


Dr. Marzano’s vision for K–12 education is simple: the vast majority of schools can be highly effective in promoting student learning. To show how, he created the Marzano High Reliability Schools™ framework. This framework, based on 40 years of educational research, defines five progressive levels of performance that a school must master to become a high reliability school—where all students learn the content and skills they need for success in college, careers, and beyond.


The Marzano High Reliability Schools™ framework does not add a new initiative to school efforts. Many schools are already implementing a wide range of effective initiatives, and many educators are already practicing research-based strategies. The HRS framework does not replace professional learning communities, the Art and Science of Teaching framework, teacher evaluation and development, sound curriculum (including those aligned with the Common Core State Standards), vocabulary instruction, instruction in critical thinking and reasoning skills, formative assessment, standards-based grading and reporting systems, or student mastery systems.


Instead, this framework shows how best practices work together and provides indicators to empower districts and schools to measure their progress on attaining five increasing levels of reliability:


1 - Safe and Collaborative Culture

2 - Effective Teaching in Every Classroom

3 - Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum

4 - Standards-Referenced Reporting

5 - Competency-Based Education


Using the framework and indicators, districts and schools can drive permanent, positive, and significant impacts on student achievement by synthesizing multiple complex initiatives into one harmonious system.
