In September 2016, the
Goshen Central School District began using
MySchoolBucks, a secure, online payment system that allows parents to
quickly deposit money into their child’s school meal account at their
What are the benefits of MySchoolBucks?
Parents will be able to pay for school meals, view
their child’s account balance, receive optional alerts when the balance
is low, and even see what food purchases their child made – anytime,
anywhere, from their computer or smart phone.
Payments can be made with a credit card, debit card
or checking account and are quickly credited to your child’s account.
Parents can also schedule recurring payments.
Want to know what your child is eating? MySchoolBucks
gives parents the ability to print out a copy of their child’s eating
history report that shows the dates and times that your child purchased
school breakfast and/or lunch within the past 90 days.
Parents can also take advantage of the optional, free
“Low Balance Alert” that will send an e-mail straight to your inbox when
your child’s account is getting low – but before they have used up all
their funds. Please note that this feature is the only means of
notification that your child’s account is low – paper notices will not
be sent home by the district. To sign up, look for Low Balance Alert
under the “Profile” option in your account.
How do I set up an account?
Setting up an account is easy – visit
to sign up. All you need is your child’s name, student ID number
(sent to you in your back-to-school mailing), and school zip code. If
you have more than one child in the district, you can handle all online
prepayments from the same account. You can also download the
MySchoolBucks App onto your smartphone from the Apple App Store or
Google Play Market.
Important things to know
Making a payment is easy. The deposit amount can be
placed against a credit card, debit card or your checking account. All
payments are securely processed using MySchoolBucks’ highly secure
website and encryption. All payments are quickly credited to your
In order to use the online prepayment service, a
small convenience fee for each transaction will be assessed to cover the
bank fees. The convenience fee is $1.95 per deposit transaction. Parents
placing money into multiple meal accounts will only be assessed the
$1.95 fee once per deposit transaction. Goshen Central School District
will not profit from the use of this site.
If you decide not to take advantage of the online
prepayment service, you may continue to make advance payments via check,
which should be made out to Goshen Central School District. Please write
your child’s full name on the check.
