The School District of Athens recognizes that, in addition to the District’s schools, non-profit community organizations offer engaging and enriching programs, activities, and events to students. As a courtesy to non-profit community organizations, the District allows information/materials that meet the criteria outlined below to be shared with students and families through E-Flyers.
For families without internet access, flyers may be made available for individual schools. It is the organization’s responsibility to provide the copies.
Flyers are posted within ten days of receipt, and a notification will be emailed to parents on the 1st of each month.
Organizations wishing to post an E-Flyer must submit their contact information and E-Flyer in PDF format to: firstname.lastname@example.org
