Beginning July 29, 2019, Elmhurst District 205 began to use a new online payment system called PushCoin. Parents and guardians of D205 students will be able to fund their students’ lunch accounts using PushCoin’s easy to use, mobile friendly site. Parents and guardians of York students will be able to pay their high school fees through PushCoin, in addition to funding their students' lunch accounts.
MySchoolBucks, the application previously used to fund lunch accounts, is now closed to accommodate the migration to the new system. However, please know that all remaining balances and prior debt from D205’s legacy payment system, will be transferred to PushCoin.
The new service will include:
- Automated processing of student billing
- Flexibility of managing a variety of payment options
- Email communication regarding lunch balances and outstanding payments
- Free eCheck payment option available
District 205 uses the online payment system PushCoin. Please note the following regarding refunds:
The PushCoin system will be used for all student purchases in the cafeteria. High school students will use PushCoin for fee payments, cafeteria purchases and the PushCoin webstore. No refunds will be given on deliverable items such as, but not limited to, the following: grade level fees, handbooks, ID’s, parking permits, yearbooks, etc. Course fees may be refunded in the event of a schedule change through August 30th. When a schedule change results in a refund of course fees, the refund will be made to your student’s PushCoin wallet.
Contributions to a student’s PushCoin wallet should be made in amounts that reasonably can be expended by the student each school year. As long as your student remains in District 205, no refund from a student wallet will be issued. Refunds from a student wallet will only be processed when there is a qualifying event: graduation or transfer out of the District. Parents/guardians of graduating seniors and students transferring out of the District must complete an electronic refund request in PushCoin to receive a refund. No automatic refunds will occur. ALL refunds will be made by check to the requester.
