Carmel Unified School District improves school-to-home communication by implementing Peachjar to distribute school flyers directly to families digitally
Carmel Unified 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, Carmel Unified School District will start using Peachjar as of August 1, 2018 to send digital flyers directly to our families.
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, Carmel Unified School District expects to eliminate the need to print roughly 672,000 sheets of paper per year– nearly 81 trees. Additionally, the school district no longer incurs the administrative burden and costs associated with paper flyer distribution.
First Day of School is August 14th

Dear Parents and CUSD employees: A Chicago colleague asked recently, “What is the name of your new school district?” “Carmel Unified,” I responded. “Unified? ” she inquired as though she had misheard. I quickly responded, “Yes, in Chicago we would call it a Unit District. It serves students in grades K-12. Actually we also have a preschool program here, so it’s actually pre-K to grade 12, but it’s about the same thing as a unit district.”
