Central Valley launches MySchoolBucks

MySchoolBucks web link

Central Valley School District families now have a new way to pay for school cafeteria purchases. MySchoolBucks is an online service through which parents can access their students’ cafeteria accounts and make payments to those accounts with a credit card (MasterCard, Visa or Discover) or E-Check. Even if families choose not to pay online, they can still monitor their children’s purchases.

Is there a fee?
  • There is no fee to open an account. With the account, you can monitor your child’s purchases, receive notification of low balances, etc.
  • Like an ATM, MySchoolBucks charges a transaction fee. (Note: You will have the opportunity to review any fees and cancel if you choose, before you are charged.) That fee is either:
    • $2.49 per transaction or
    • $12.95 per student or $26.95 per family for unlimited transactions throughout the year.
Why use MySchool Bucks?
  • Convenience – Available 24/7 on the web or with the Mobile App for your iPhone, Android or Windows phone!
  • Efficiency – Make payments for all your students, even if they attend different schools within the district.  Eliminate the need for your students to take money to school.
  • Control – Set low balance alerts, view account activity, recurring/automatic payments & more!
  • Flexibility – Make payments using credit/debit cards and electronic checks.
  • Security – MySchoolBucks adheres to the highest security standards, including PCI and CISP.
How do I use MySchoolBucks?
  • Go to and register for a free account.
  • You will receive a confirmation email with a link to activate your account.
  • Add your students using their school name and student ID.
  • Make a payment to your students’ accounts with your credit/debit card or electronic check.
