eFlyer Accessibility Guidelines

  • The following information regarding Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 A & AA Standards was provided by Peachjar, our eFlyer distribution service on 2/15/18:

    We are excited to announce that beginning Tuesday, February 20th, Peachjar's digital content will comply with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 A & AA standards! These are the guidelines by which the Office of Civil Rights requires the school district's digital content to comply with.

    What does that mean? It means that both emails sent to parents through Peachjar, and each school's Peachjar flyer page, are now be compatible with screen readers and other assistive technologies. Furthermore, Peachjar has undergone an extensive audit with Monsido, a leading web accessibility scanning tool, to ensure that our content is up to these standards.

    Please note: In order to accomplish this, the text from your flyer will be copied into an editable text box. For best results, we recommend your flyer meets the following requirements:

    1. Be 1-4 pages in length (required). Learn more about how to send longer flyers.

    2. Contain clear and legible text in size 12 font or larger.

    3. Not be a scanned or copied document.

    Flyers that do not meet 2 or 3 CAN be distributed, but since the software may not recognize the text, you may be required to copy/paste or type the text into the description box. Additionally, please note that embedded links within your flyer will no longer be supported. Learn more about including links with your flyer.

    After Feb. 20th, all flyers uploaded will contain a description box. If the text on your flyer does not match the text in the description box, your flyer may be denied.

    If you have any additional questions, feel free to contact 27J Communications staff members Tracy Rudnick or Mikel Philippi.
