E-fund Letter for Parents

 

Do you ever find yourself rushing to your child's school to make some kind of a payment? Wouldn't it be nice if you could bypass checks and cash? Good news! An 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. This program offers an easier way for parents/guardians to make payments online. Not only will you have the ability to have 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 electronically withdrawn from your checking account or charged to your credit card, you also have the flexibility to make a payment at any time through the school's website.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, which means it is FREE for you to use. The district does not request or keep records of your family's checking or credit card account information.

You are in full control of your account and can make a payment at any time. No payments will be allowed without your knowledge, and authorization is through a secure payment system. 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 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 non-school related items.

Payments from a credit card or checking account are easy to set up.

Parents/guardians may establish a re-occurring payment, or opt to make a one-time payment.

The program offers various types of payment 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.

We are a tuition-free K-12 school. This online payment method is only for bus payments, athletic fees, field trips, and much more. If you would like to make payments in person with a check or cash, then this option is still available. If you have any questions, please contact Jenny Hugo at 989-284-3988, or hugoj@baycityacademy.com. Thank you for being an important member of our BCA family!
