E-fund Letter for Parents
Do you ever wish you didn't have to write a check for sports? Do you ever find yourself rushing to the school to drop cash off for your bus payment? Wouldn't it be nice if the school had an on-line payment method so you could bypass the checks and cash? Good news, a new on-line payment option for families will be available beginning Tuesday, August 28, 2018.
Bay City Academy is pleased to introduce a new program called e~Funds for Schools. This program offers an easier way for parents/guardians who choose to make payments on-line and is extremely user friendly. Not only will you have the ability to have various school fees (such as bus payments, athletic fees, field trips, etc.) electronically withdrawn from your checking account or charged to your credit card, you also have the flexibility to make a payment at any time through the school's website. The e~Funds for Schools electronic payment service is provided to the school by a third party service provider. The service provider has a nominal fee for their service that the school will absorb, this means it is FREE for you to use. The district does not request or keep records of family checking or credit card account information.
You are in full control of your account and can make a payment at any time that is convenient for you. No payments will be allowed without your knowledge and authorization through this secure payment system. By providing your home and/or work email address, an email notification informing you of the student’s name, purpose of the payment, and the amount of the item, will be sent to you each time that a payment is to be processed. The e~Funds for Schools site is secure and uses industry standard data encryption.
How does e-Funds for Schools work?
Families set up and maintain their own logins, passwords, and payment preferences. Your account information is retained in a password-protected file.
e~Funds for Schools will help to eliminate last minute check writing hassles, improve efficiencies, and help cut costs for both you and the school district.
Online payments will help eliminate the worry that your children could lose or forget the money intended for school items or that it might be spent on other non-school related items.
Payments from a credit card or checking account may easily be set up.
Parents/guardians may establish a reoccurring payment or may opt to make a one-time payment.
The program offers various types of payment to families that include but are not limited to instructional
materials, field trip fees, yearbook fees, and graduation fees. The system may be expanded to include other fees as well.
Your payment history for the year is available with a click of the mouse.
Please remember, we are a tuition free, K-11 grade public school. This new on-line payment method is ONLY for bus payments, athletic fees, field trips, and much more. If you would still like to make payments in person with a check or cash we will still accept them. If you have any questions upon using this service please contact Jenny Hugo at 989-284-3988 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for being an important member of our BCA family!
