Optional Pre-Payment Service
My Lunch Money has been changed to My School Bucks. Please see below updated information to participate.
Parents may now pre-pay by credit or debit card for student meals and ala'carte. Please visit: www.myschoolbucks.com to participate or call 1-855-832-5226.
In order for parents to create an account on myschoolbucks, they must know their student's ten digit customer ID number. Parents can retrieve the ID number from a tab on their Parent Portal accounts, labeled SW Café. This is a web-based service that requires little interaction with the café manager.
The ParentPortal is a tool designed to enhance the communication and involvement of parents in their child's education in Volusia County Schools. In addition to guiding you to your child's prepaid lunch account, the ParentPortal will allow you to monitor your child's progress in school by providing Internet access to grades, attendance, discipline, academic history, graduation verification, and standardized test results in a secure password protected environment. Contact your school to sign up for ParentPortal.
Please note: There is no fee for parents to set up an account and view a meal history. If parents wish to use myschoolbucks for pre-payment, there is a $1.95 per transaction fee.
We Now Subscribe with CheckRedi for the Collection of all Insufficient Fund Checks.
Your check is welcome at Volusia County Schools. However we are not able at this time to accept the Bluebird American Express/Walmart checks. The District recognizes that occasionally a parent may inadvertently overdraw a checking account and a check may be returned by the bank. In order to recover these funds in a private and professional manner, Volusia County Schools has contracted CHECKredi, a company specializing in the collection of returned checks.
Each check written to a school or the District must have the maker's name, address, and one phone number. When a person writes a check to a school or the District, the person writing the check agrees that, if the check is returned, it may be re-presented electronically on the same account for the full face amount and a fee established by Florida law. ?
CHECKredi will contact you by mail and by telephone in order to make arrangements to pay before attempting to re-present the check electronically. Payments of the check and fee may also be made online at http://www.checkredi.com/ using a credit card, debit card or electronic check without any additional fees. For a convenience fee, payments may be made over the telephone at (877) 524-7334 by credit card, debit card, or electronic check. Payments cannot be made at a school or the District.
