eFunds for Schools
We are pleased to offer a service for parents called efunds for Schools. This user-friendly program offers various options for parents/guardians who choose to make online payments for meals and school fees. Parents will have the option of paying fees by having funds electronically withdrawn from their checking account, credit card or debit card. eFunds For Schools is a secure service provider authorized by the Board of Education. e-Funds will charge parents a convenience fee for processing payments, similar to other online banking services. The district will not request or keep records of family checking or credit card account information.

The service provider has a nominal convenience fee for completing transactions. The district does not share in the fee. It goes directly to e-Funds. Parents can pay fees and reload accounts for multiple children and have it counted as ONE transaction.
Electronic Checking Payment (from your bank account) = $1.50
Note: This fee goes directly to eFunds and is not set by the school district. The system carries a Non-Sufficient Funds (NSF) charge if the payment is returned as such. There is a $1,000 daily transaction limit for checking accounts.
Credit or Debit Cards = $2.95 flat fee
