Online School Payment Solution for parents
Coeur d’Alene School District has launched a new online payment service allowing parents the opportunity to pay for a student’s food service, school fees/fines and School PLUS anywhere they have access to the web. The online payment solution is provided as an additional payment option and as a convenience for parents. Cash and checks will be accepted at the schools for all registration fees.
The district’s goal is for parents to be able to skip long payment lines at registration for those who choose to use the online payment solution. Parents may either pay student fees from home or work before they attend registration or may access district provided computers set up at the schools during registration.
A parent may pay online with either a credit/debit card or by entering their check information. If a parent opts to pay using a credit card a convenience fee of $1.95 is charged. If a parent opts for check payment there is no additional fee.
The online payment service is accessed through the district’s FAMILY ACCESS, a student administrative system that involves parents in the education process and allows the district to provide timely information. Parents can view their student’s attendance, grades, progress reports and look at food purchases and balances online. The system is also used for district emergency communications to parents.
Parents will need their FAMILY ACCESS login and password to register for the online payment system. The FAMILY ACCESS link and tutorial on how to use the online payment service is available on the main page of the district’s website at: www.cdaschools.org (if a parent has lost their login or password, they may follow the lost password prompt on the login page of FAMILY ACCESS.)
