New technology available to the Indian River School District allows parents to easily balance school meal payments while tracking what their children are purchasing in the school cafeteria.
The district utilizes the K12 Payment Center system in all school cafeterias. K12 Payment Center replaced the previous PayPAMS online payment system.
K12 Payment Center offers parents a variety of new and helpful features, including enhanced options for managing low account balances, the ability to set low balance notifications for any desired amount and 24-hour secure access to their child’s purchasing history. To access the new system, parents should visit www.k12paymentcenter.com and register for a new account.
The Basic Account option, which is free of charge, is a quick and easy payment system for student meals. Parents can make deposits to multiple student accounts with a single payment and set recurring payments for monthly or weekly deposits. There is a $1.95 fee per transaction. Payment processing is secure and all account information is confidential.
Parents can also establish a Premium Account for a lifetime membership fee of $10. The Premium Account allows parents to see their child’s cafeteria balance at any time, set automated notifications via e-mail and text when a balance falls below a specified amount and access data on meals purchased and payments made during the past 120 days.
Under the new system, every $10 will purchase $11 worth of meals. Once a parent sets up a new K12 Payment Center account, it will take a minimum of 24 hours for existing account balances to transfer into the new system. To register, parents will need their child’s student identification number. To obtain this number, please contact your child’s school.
