    2019 - 2020 Distribution Guidelines

    For-Profit Businesses/Organizations
    Revised July 2019


    The Alvin ISD Communications Department is responsible for reviewing and approving flyers and printed materials for non-profit and for-profit businesses/organizations. For all non-Alvin ISD organizations/businesses, PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT THE SCHOOLS regarding your distribution. If you’re distributing coupons, please click the “coupons/yard signs” tab under “distribution request.” All distribution materials must be of benefit to Alvin ISD students, families and/or staff.


    GUIDELINES for-profit organizations:

    • Include the following disclaimer:  “Alvin ISD has approved the distribution of this non-school literature at campuses in accordance with the established procedures. This organization and its activities are not related to or sponsored by Alvin ISD.” 

    • The Flyer should not contain advertising logos or promotions for any business/organization other than the approved agency submitting the flyer. No fundraising/event announcements are allowed from groups outside of the school, unless there is a direct educational value to students and/or schools.

    • If your organization is using an Alvin ISD facility for your event, you must provide the approved Alvin ISD Facilities Usage/Rental Agreement with your submission.

    • If at any time it is determined that previous flyers or written materials presented for approval contained false information or did not accurately represent the intent of the program, the approval of future flyers submitted by the requesting organization will be jeopardized.

    • Flyers will not be approved for distribution during the following times: the first two weeks of school (Aug. 15-Sept. 2, 2019), the week prior to the winter holiday (Dec. 16 – Dec. 20, 2019), the first week of the second semester (Jan. 6 – 10, 2020) or the last two weeks of school (May 11 – 22, 2020). There will be no distribution during school holiday/breaks or during the months of June, July, and August. Please allow 5-7 business days for approval.

    • Once approved, it is the responsibility of the requestor to print and distribute their flyers to each requested campus, accompanied by the approval form (flyers must be distributed no later than 10 business days after approval date and will be removed after one month). Up to 50 flyers may be delivered to each requested campus. Each campus maintains the privilege of if and when information will be distributed in their office.

    • For-profit flyer distribution requests are for a one-time per semester, per campus distribution approval.


    Hard copies of flyers for all external (non-Alvin ISD related) organizations/businesses are not distributed to students in take home folders, as this causes a disruption to the learning environment. Exceptions will be made for the following entities:  teacher organizations, entities under contractual agreements with the District such as portrait photographers, suppliers of graduation materials, those supported by local tax dollars, such as the Cities of Alvin, Manvel, and Pearland.


    There will be no “for profit” distribution during the months of August 2019 and June-August 2020.
