Meal Payments Made Easy

Make a Payment Button

JCPS has partnered with an online service called MySchoolBucks so parents can pay for school meals using a credit or debit card. Parents may also monitor transactions and set up convenient email reminders when funds are running low. Parents of students who attend a Community Eligibility (CE) school (which means all students receive free meals) still may want to set up an online account so students can buy à la carte items.

How to Enroll

  • Go to, and register for an account.
