Online Payments - e~Funds for Schools
Image

Spring-Ford Area School District is pleased to introduce e~Funds for Schools, a new program for cafeteria payments that offers various options for parents/guardians who choose to make payments on-line. e~Funds For Schools is extremely user friendly. Lunch payments can be electronically withdrawn from your checking account or charged to your credit card. You also have the flexibility to make a payment at any time through the school's website. The e~Funds For Schools service is offered to you by a third-party service provider and they charge for processing your payment(s), similar to other on-line banking services. You may choose to make payments using a checking account through ACH (Automated Clearing House) or by credit card. The District does not request or keep records of family checking or credit card account information.

About the e~Funds Payment Service
 

The e~Funds For Schools electronic payment service is provided to the District by a third-party service provider. The service provider has a nominal fee for their service.

  • For payments made by checking account through ACH, the fee is $1.00. There is no limit to the amount of money that you may place on account in a single transaction. For example, if you specify that $100.00 is to be deposited in your child's lunch account, a total of $101.00 ($100.00 deposit + $1.00 fee) will be deducted from your checking account. The system also carries a Non-Sufficient Funds (NSF) charge of $15.00. When you set up your account, please review your options carefully.

  • For payments made by credit card, the fee is $2.49 flat fee. There is a $250 limit to the amount of money that you may place on account in a single transaction. For example, if you specify that $160.00 is to be deposited in your child's lunch account, a total of $162.49 ($160.00 deposit + $2.49 fee) will be charged to your credit card. When you set up your account, please review your options carefully.

No portion of the fees benefit the District. The fees are charged in addition to the amount you specify to be posted to your child's lunch account. You are in full control of your account and can make a payment at any time that is convenient for you. No payments will be allowed without your knowledge and authorization through this secure payment system. By providing your home and/or work e-mail address, an e-mail notification informing you of the student’s name, purpose of the payment, and the amount of the item will be sent to you each time that a payment is to be processed. The e~Funds For Schools site is secure and uses industry standard data encryption.


How e~Funds for Schools Works


Families set up and maintain their own logins, passwords, and payment preferences. Your account information is retained in a password-protected file.

  • e~Funds For Schools will help to eliminate last minute check-writing hassles and improve efficiencies.

  • On-line payments will help eliminate the worry that your children could lose or forget the money intended for school lunches or that it might be spent on other non-school related items.

  • Payments from a credit card or checking account may easily be set up.

  • Parents/guardians may establish a recurring payment or may opt to make a one-time payment.

  • Your payment history for the year is available with a click of the mouse.

Before clicking below to set up your child's account at e~Funds for Schools, please note: when you are asked to register your child, the system will prompt for your child's Student ID or your Family ID. Your child's ID is their 6-digit number; your Family ID is your 10-digit home (primary) phone number entered without any punctuation. If your Family ID will not work, it might be that your phone number is unlisted or not entered or incorrect in Skyward (our student information system). In that event, ask your child for their Student ID (the same number they use to sign into the school's computer network, to checkout library books, and to purchase lunch). Your child's Student ID can also be located by signing into Skyward.

Please note that your first transaction after setting up your account could take up to 3 business days to process while your account information is verified. Subsequent transactions should be available within 1 day.
