For accounts with a credit balance at the conclusion of a school year, the balance will be credited to next year’s beginning balance. For any unpaid student balance, PushCoin automatically applies fee payments to the oldest debt first. Any prior year unpaid fees must be paid off before applying to the current year fees.
The PushCoin system processes District payments including student fee payments, food service, school store, field trips and webstore purchases. Refunds for payment or purchases will be made to your student's PushCoin Wallet. Balances in a student's wallet can be used to pay for food service, school store, field trip(s) and webstore purchases. Money in a student wallet can be transferred to “fees” pay for any incurred fees, the parent just needs to transfer the money to the proper account (or request assistance from the school’s front office).
Contributions to a student's PushCoin wallet should be made in amounts that can be reasonably expended by the student each school year. No automatic refunds will occur.
Refunds from a student wallet will only be processed when there is a qualifying event: graduation or transfer out of the District. Parent/Guardian of students transferring out of the District must complete a refund request to receive a refund. Graduating seniors, any remaining balance will be transferred to a sibling’s account and notice of the credit sent to the parent/guardian of record via PushCoin notification. If a senior’s account has a credit balance in excess of $5 and no younger sibling is enrolled, a full refund shall be issued to the parent/guardian of record. No automatic refunds will occur. All refunds will be made by check to requestor. No refunds will be issued for accounts with a balance of less than $5.
