E-Funds For Schools

(Pay For Lunches Online)

The Ponca School District is pleased to introduce a new program call e-Funds for Schools. This program offers various options for parents/guardians who choose to make payments on-line for lunches. You have the ability to make lunch payments electronically withdrawn from your checking account or charged to your debit or credit card.  The district does not request or keep records of family checking or credit card account information.

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. There is a $1.00 transaction convenience fee for each electronic checking payment that you make regardless of how many accounts you are paying money towards.  The system carries a Non-Sufficient Funds (NSF) charge if the payment is “bad”.

For payments made by credit or debit card, there is a convenience fee of $2.45 per each $100 increment in the transaction. When you set up your account, please review your options carefully.

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 School” site is secure and uses industry standard data encryption.
