At the August 13th board meeting, the School Board approved a contract with RevTrak to enable the district to expand on-line purchasing options for parents. The district has been using PaySchools for the past seven years, but has been limited to offering nutrition and transportation fees. RevTrak will enable our district to expand on-line payments to include..
* Student fees (or any other fees within Infinite Campus)
* Transportation fees
* Community Education Classes
How does RevTrack compare to what we are using now (PaySchools)?
|Cost (to the school district)||3.35% of each transaction||3.49% of each transaction|
|Ability to integrate with Infinite Campus for student fees||No||Yes|
|Ability to pay transportation fees||Yes||Yes|
|Ability to pay for nutritional services||Yes||The district is opting to use our new nutrition software instead, as it provides access to purchase and nutrition information as well as payments.|
|Ability to pay for Community Education classes||No||Yes|
|Ability for the district to establish an on-line portal for optional fees (year books, apparel, etc)||No||Yes|
Will parents see any convenience fees or surcharges on their payments?
No. Our district does not currently include or pass any convenience fees to parents through PaySchools, and our plan to continue the same practice with RevTrak. No convenience fees will be displayed or changed to parents through RevTrak.
Will nutrition payments continue through PaySchools or RevTrak?
Nutrition payments will continue through PaySchools until the new lunch program (CyberSoft) is in place and functioning.
Why not move the nutrition payments to RevTrak so that parents can pay for everything in one place?
We’re moving the nutrition payments to Cybersoft later this year because their solution provides more functionality. For example, CyberSoft will enable parents to see lunch menus, see exact purchases that their students made, set up restrictions/limits on what students can purchase, and also allow parents to see specific nutritional information on items that are available.
When will RevTrak be available for parents?
We’re anticipating that services will be available by late Sept.
