PaySchools Introduction


We now offer PaySchools Central as a resource for the parents of students in our district. PaySchools Central is a secure payment system which simplifies school payments in an easy-to-use online portal. It enables parents to fund lunch accounts and pay required and optional fees online quickly and easily. PaySchools Central also allows parents to opt into and manage email reminders about their student’s accounts, so it’s easy to remember to replenish lunch accounts or pay for that upcoming field trip.

PaySchools Central can be accessed via our online portal:, or via convenient mobile app.
