Sharing Community Information
Community organizations and clubs often look to the Clear Creek Amana Community School District to spread the word about upcoming events, camps, and activities. To meet the needs of these organizations while also cutting down on the amount of paper sent home with students each week, we use a Digital Backpack system.
The Digital Backpack is a one-stop resource for parents to check out upcoming events and activities, conveniently referenced online. All flyers posted in the Digital Backpack must be approved by the communications department and abide by Board Policy 903.05 Distribution of Materials and Board Regulation 903.05-R(1) Distribution of Materials Regulation.
What should you include on the flyer:
- Event or Fundraiser name
- Your Organization Name
- Where is it located
- Any cost associated with the event
- Follow the submission guidelines
- All information pertaining to the purpose should be contained on the flyer
Please note that if the flyer is for a CCA School/Activity fundraiser it will need to be approved through the proper fundraising channels prior to being posted in the Digital Backpack.
Flyer Submission Guidelines:
- Those wishing to submit information to be posted on this Clipper Backpack site must do so by email to firstname.lastname@example.org and attaching the flyer in a JPG or PDF format. This should be done 3-7 days in advance of being posted.
