    IMPORTANT NOTICE AND DISCLAIMER TO PARENTS / GUARDIANS & STUDENTS REGARDING USE OF CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS FOR SCHOOL FEES

    In an effort to offer additional convenience and options to parents, guardians, and/or any students who have available credit and may be paying for themselves, the Aiken County School District has entered into an agreement with Veracity Payment Solutions, a third party provider that processes charge card payments, to allow payment of such obligations as school matriculation fees and costs, band fees and rentals, certain athletic charges, lost or damaged book fees, parking fees, yearbook costs, and similar requirements by charge card to any persons desiring to do so.

    Merchants who utilize and allow the use of charge card payments have similar arrangements. However, this is a web-based service and will not entail the direct use of slide card electronic reading devices at any school site. Therefore, it will be necessary for any parent, guardian, student or patron desiring to pay by charge card for any student fees to click on the link to the provider’s web site and provide the information shown in order to utilize this convenience. The Aiken County School District does not provide the processing service, the security protections built into the system, or store this information on its servers or have electronic access thereto (other than the receipt of remittances paid by the provider, including the amounts received and the designation of items for which payment has been made).

    The School District therefore assumes no liability for the security of such financial and personal information and makes no representation as to the advisability of using charge card payments. As with any web-based service, it is the consumer’s ultimate judgment, free choice, and assumption of any risk involved in utilizing this methodology for paying obligations.

    Please note that a convenience fee of $2.50 will be added to your credit card bill for any charge transaction.  Such convenience fees are to compensate for credit card company gateway (processing) fees and associated costs to the District in order to be able to facilitate this payment option.

Reduced Fees Explanation

  • *Reduced Price Registration Fees Explanation (for students qualifying for Reduced Lunch)

    Elementary $6.55

    Middle $6.95

    High $10.00

     

    Registration fees for students who pay the reduced price for their meals must be calculated based on the price of reduced-price meals. 

    The 2016-17 meal fees will be:

    Full-Pay Lunch For Elementary Students:  $2.45/day

    Full-Pay Lunch For Middle & High:  $2.60/day

    Reduced-Pay Lunch for all student age groups are: $0.40/day

     

    Since registration fees for students on reduced pay must be equivalent to the percentage they pay for reduced price lunches, the registration fees for students on reduced pay lunch will be as follows:

    Elementary                  $0.40/$2.45 =   .1633               .1633 x $40 = $6.55

    Middle                         $.40/$2.60 =    .1538                .1538 x $45 = $6.95

    High                            $.40/$2.60 =  .1538                  .1538 x $65 = $10.00

     

    (Elementary, middle and High fees rounded up to nearest five cents.)
