Distribution of Information to Schools

External groups/organizations wishing to distribute information (community information, flyers, etc.) to Renfrew County District School Board (RCDSB) schools are required to obtain authorization and approval for distribution from the Communications Manager. 

All external groups are required to consult with us prior to preparing material intended for distribution to schools.

The RCDSB will no longer send home paper copies of community information, flyers, etc. This type of information will only be distributed electronically. Electronic distribution is an environmentally friendly solution that will greatly reduce each school's expenses related to the cost of paper and printing and save volunteer and staff hours counting and sorting materials for distribution.

Electronic distribution also greatly reduces the amount of paper being sent home to our families.

Criteria for Approval

  • Material must be of educational value and non-commercial in nature (from charitable or not-for-profit groups)
  • Promote physical health and/or student well-being
  • Material and programs/activities offered must be consistent with the Board’s Strategic Priorities

Approval Process

  • Please forward your request, along with an electronic copy (PDF) of the material to be distributed to laderouteja@rcdsb.on.ca
  • All material and website links will be reviewed for content.
  • Confirmation of approval will be provided to those approved for electronic posting.

Please allow a minimum of 2 weeks for review and response.

Due to the volume of requests received, and availability of resources, the RCDSB is not able to guarantee distribution or posting of information related to winter break, March break, statutory holiday or summer vacation activities and camps without sufficient lead time.

Community-related items (example: local bake sales/clothing drives) do not require system-wide approval. Principals may, at their discretion, agree to circulate/post this material for their individual school communities. Please contact schools directly with these requests.

Postings do not represent an endorsement to any organization and/or their activities.
