Wake Community Flyers

Lifelong Learning with Community Schools

We welcome you to Wake County Public School System's in-house digital flyer distribution service. Wake Community Flyers offers youth-oriented agencies, businesses, and organizations a direct monthly connection to WCPSS student families. That's right, flyer distribution at the schools has turned digital! For $35 per school ($25 nonprofit), you have the opportunity to digitally reach over 160,000 students and their families. With color printing costs averaging $340 per school, that's quite a savings.

We understand your goal is to get your flyers seen and convert your purchased advertising into sales. And parents want to know what options are out there for their children. We can help get your flyers seen by giving you the freedom to strategically choose which regions, schools, and grade levels you want to advertise to specifically. Then the conversion comes from your intelligently designed flyer and strategically crafted website. Note that there are restrictions on who can advertise with us and what your flyer must include per board policy. Read the important notice in the box referring to board policy.

Extra Advertising Options

The extra options are purchased in addition to the basic advertising packages. Pay attention to the limitations and requirements listed below.

Header Scrolling Image (View sample)

Each of the school-specific webpages includes a maximum of five scrolling images in the header section of the page. Scrolling images are known to grab attention due to their use of photographs and color. The images are on a timed scroll and are ordered on a first-come first-served basis.

Vendor pricing for extras is the same for regular and nonprofits. The basic package must be purchased for each school-specific webpage you plan to include an image.

Regular & Nonprofits: $175 per school plus basic package for school(s) selected.

Featured Flyers: Webpage & Email (View sample)

The featured flyers are optionally included in the emails and school-specific webpages and are an additional cost to the basic package.

The first option requires an additional purchase of the basic package for each school chosen. The second choice requires a basic package purchase of a full regional grade level in addition to the extra costs. An advertiser can choose to purchase a single feature flyer option or both.

1)Webpage Feature: $125 per school plus basic package of school(s) selected. A maximum of ten features per school-specific webpage are available per month.

Example: 4 schools with webpage features.
(4 schools x $35 reg. basic packages) + (4 schools x $125 webpage features)
=$140 + $500 = $640

2)Regional Email Feature: $19 per school per regional grade level plus the basic costs for all schools in that regional grade level. A maximum of six features per regional grade level email are available per month. You must have selected a full regional grade level in the basic package to have access to this extra.

Example: 1 flyer in central region elementary schools with email feature only.
(1 central elementary school region = 14 schools x $35 reg. basic packages) + (1 central elementary regional email feature = 14 schools x $19)
=$490 + $266 = $756
