Over the past few months, the Board of Education has received feedback from members of the community regarding a recent increase to the convenience fee* charged by My School Bucks each time families pre-fund school meal accounts using that service.
As a result of this feedback, the Board of Education took action at a recent Board meeting to defray the full costs of these fees charged by My School Bucks for families of the William Floyd School District beginning on 9/1/18. Families will now have the ability to pre-fund school meal accounts through MySchoolBucks at no additional charge. Please note that accounts can still be pre-funded through cash, check or money order also at no additional cost.
*Please note that the district partners with this vendor to provide convenience for families in order to pre-fund meal accounts, track student purchases and more. The district does not manage and has not received any benefit from the program’s transaction/convenience fees.
