BCS Virtual Backpack and Digital Flyer Distribution Procedures

  • Berkeley County Schools recognizes the importance of educational and cultural programs non-profit organizations provide students after school hours. The BCS Virtual Backpack is an opportunity for these organizations to share information with students and parents via the BCS website, as a complement to the educational mission of the District.   

    Non-profits can post via Virtual Backpack with the option of providing a limited quantity of paper copies (no more than 25) to district schools. If your flyer is approved, we will post it in the BCS Virtual Backpack on our website and provide a link to your event or activity in our bi-weekly e-newsletter. Approved flyers are only posted September through May. 
    To submit your flyer for approval in the BCS Virtual Backpack:
