Information about the program
The District is pleased to offer parents the ability to manage their child’s meal account over the Internet by using PayForIt.net, an online school management tool.
The new service benefits schools, parents and students. Cashiers will spend less time taking deposits at the serving line; parents do not have to worry about money not reaching the school; and students never have to worry about not having money to pay for lunch.
Through PayForIt.net, parents can log in at any time to make a deposit to their child’s account, view their child’s account balance, set up recurring deposits to their child’s account, set up e-mail notifications when their child’s account falls below a certain dollar amount, or request a report showing what the child has purchased on their account. Payments processed before 9 pm ET should post to the student’s account the next morning, in most cases.
There is a 3.9% credit card transaction fee assessed to each transaction. If using an electronic check, thre is a flat fee of $1.75. The fee is only charged when you add money to your child’s account. Parents can view the account balance and see what their child has purchased without incurring this fee. If a parent has multiple children enrolled in the District, they can add money to each child’s account during the same transaction.
Transactions processed by PayForIt.net are safe and secure using Secure Socket Link, SSL, technology with Digicert. With this technology, schools can be assured that all student information, credit card information and all other student data will be highly encrypted and secure.
Mac users must use Mozilla’s Firefox internet browser to use PayForIt.net. Firefox is free to download from www.mozilla.com.
Parents choosing not to use PayForIt.net for credit card transactions can continue to submit cash and checks as in the past.
