PaySchools is the NEW online website link that allows families to pay for school fees and add money to their student’s lunch accounts with a debit/credit card from a computer or Smartphone. Parents can access this link on the front page of the district website.

All funds from accounts in EZPay have been transferred to PaySchools. Please create a new account and add students to your account. Link located to the right.

You may still continue to send in cash or check (made out to Canal Winchester Schools) with your student to be added to his/her lunch account at NO charge. 

There is a convenience fee for Pay Schools transactions. CLICK HERE PaySchools instruc.pdf

First time users need to set up an account:

 You will just need an email account and your student’s ID # (your student’s lunch number, ask your student before contacting the district, most know their number).

After you have set up an account:

  • Add money to your student’s lunch account
  • Pay school fees
  • Set up ‘low balance’ emails to ensure your student has money for lunch.

Plan for 48 hours or 2 business days for monies to post to account.  Therefore, plan ahead for your student to have enough money to purchase lunch.

Grades K– 12 will continue to receive free lunch and breakfast for the 2021-22 school year.  *Extras can still be purchased
