MySchoolBucks – the Waynesville R-VI School District’s new online meal payment system – is free to use to look up a student’s balances/transaction history/etc.; however, a $2 payment processing fee is charged for making an online payment with MySchoolBucks.
In the former system, a .29 cents fee plus 2.9% of the amount of the transaction was charged. MySchoolBucks charges a flat $2.00 fee, regardless of the amount. Parents may avoid paying the fee by sending in a check to their student’s school.
Debit and credit card companies charge a payment processing fee for payments made online, but many businesses absorb that cost. Waynesville R-VI serves about 1 million meals annually and spends about $1 million more than it receives in income from students and commodities without the additional payment processing fee.
National Educational Leader Dr. Willard “Bill” Daggett inspired Waynesville R-VI teachers and staff with his message of preparing students for college and career readiness through rigorous and relevant instruction on Thursday.
Daggett was the keynote speaker for the opening session on Aug. 11 – the first day back for teachers.
The most rapidly improving schools “put the future of our children in front of what adults are comfortable with,” Daggett said.
