BOARD OF EDUCATION MEETING

November 16, 2009

 


ISSUE:           Pay School Fees

 

FOR:              Review and Approve

 

CONTACT:  Superintendent Monroe

 


BACKGROUND: 

The District currently uses Pay Schools to offer parents in the District an opportunity to pay on-line for services such as school lunches, registration and other school related charges.

 

In order for our parents to have access to pay on-line, there is a surcharge that is passed along to the school that the District has been paying.  Because interest rates are low, we no longer have the ability to offset those surcharges.  We are requesting that the Board consider passing these surcharges along to parents.  The transaction fee cost is 3.5% and would be paid by the customers who use Pay Schools.  We would still offer this service but the cost like any other business would go directly to the customer. 

 

This change would be effective January 1, 2010 and a letter would be sent to all parents letting them know this service charge would no longer be paid by the District and that cost would be passed on to them.  We will also post this on the web site. 

 

THE SUPERINTENDENT’S RECOMMENDATION IS:

Beginning January 1, 2010, Pay School users will be responsible to pay the 3.5% surcharge cost for the Pay Schools service.
