Dear Parents,

Dealing with your children’s school money just got a lot easier! You can now add money to their accounts for meals, online securely and even see what they are buying.

You may have previously used K12 Payment Center to access your child’s meal account, but now the website is new and improved, with more features that make it easier to manage your child’s account. You’ll even receive email and text notifications when school fees are assigned to your student.
