Local English Public School Board Launches Online Payment Program

A local school board's looking to go "cashless" at its schools.

The Algoma District School Board's launched "School Cash Online", touting it as an "easy to use, safe, and convenient way for parents and guardians to pay online for school activities, such as field trips, lunches, fundraisers, milk programs, and yearbooks".

According to the board, the program will make it easier for parents and guardians to perform regular administrative tasks, manage and track payments, avoid missing information or payments, and even approve permission forms online, while providing more security for paying fees and reducing teacher and administrative time spent on managing money.

A link to the service is available on the board's website.

ADSB's not the first local board to implement SchoolCashOnline, as the Huron-Superior Catholic District School Board announced it was doing so back in October.
