|Sharing Is Caring|
E~Funds for School is pleased to announce the release of Sharing is Caring. This new feature allows your school to establish Fund-raising opportunities for one or multiple school Fund-raising needs.
Parents are asked to approve a donation of $.50 to a selected school Fund-raising effort when they are making On-line payments to your school. The $.50 is added to the parent’s payment amount, and then, the $.50 is donated to your school.
To learn more about our Fund-raising program click here to read the March Newsletter dedicated to helping your school raise more money, with little effort.
Note to lunch directors: please pass this news release to your school’s business office, as it will allow authorized school organizations to raise money from parents making lunch payments.
|Operator Rights Scheduled Update|
An update to the systems Operator Access Rights is scheduled for release the week of February 7th.
This update will add more options to the way Operator Rights work, provide for additional security protection to the e~Funds for Schools system, and provide new options that will allow your school to further restrict staff to more targeted system access.
Your school should see no effect on the access privileges to staff currently authorized to access the e~Funds for Schools system.
Your school administrators should review these new features in order to become more familiar with the new security features now available to your school district.
Phase two of the new Operator Rights will add more Dynamic reports to the system, allowing your school to restrict staff to specific payment reports and specific payment items.
