Cafeteria


Offer vs. Serve Program


Dear Parents and Guardians,

This year we are offering PaySchool Central as a way to pay your child's cafeteria charges at PMG, RVS and CTMS.

Students will receive laminated, bar-coded cards to use at the register. These cards tie into their cafeteria debit account, as well as our student information system.

***In order to establish a debit line for your child, you must setup a Payschools account and link it to your child's cafeteria account.***

Instructions for creating the debit account can be found in this PDF. You will need the information below to link the funds to your child:

School Name, Student ID (emailed to parents), and Student Name

Anticipated questions and answers are below.

Q: Do I have to use PaySchoolsCentral? My child always brings cash.
A: PaySchools Central (PSC) allows you to make online deposits via credit card. It is also provides parents reports on how students are spending their cafeteria money. If your child typically brings his or her lunch, they only pay by cash/check, and you do not want to access reports then there is no need to setup a PSC account.

Q: PSC has a convenience fee. How can I avoid that?
A: PSC does charge a convenience fee, as did our previous systems. If you want to save the convenience charge your child may bring in a check for deposit. Checks should be made out to Clinton Township Cafeteria Fund and must have the student's name and ID number (from above) clearly in the memo field.

Q: I have multiple children in the district, can I link them all to one PayForIt account?

A: Yes. You'll just need each of their student IDs (and you should receive a copy of this email for each of your children).

Q: Does PaySchools Central have a mobile app?
A: Yes. PaySchools Central has a mobile app available for Android and iOS devices. The Android version can be downloaded on Google Play. The iOS version can be downloaded on iTunes

Q: Where can I find additional PaySchools Central resources?
A: You may download this document: PaySchoolsCentral Toolkit.pdf
