Getting the Word Out

Community organizations and clubs often look to the Johnston 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 located online. All flyers posted in the Digital Backpack must be approved by the communications department and abide by Board Policy 903.5, Distribution of Materials.

If your organization would like to submit a flyer or event, use the Digital Backpack online submission form. If your organization has an inquiry about the Digital Backpack system, please contact Laura Sprague, JCSD Director of Communications, at 515-278-0470 or laura.sprague@johnston.k12.ia.us.
