You will need to know your child’s student ID number and the amount of the fees you wish to pay.
Your child’s student ID number is (usually) a six digit number. In many cases your child will know this number, however it may also appear on statements from the cafeteria or library, report cards, progress reports, or transcripts.
An itemized list of book rentals, consumables, and other fees are sent home with students near the beginning of the year. We ask that you pay the total amount listed on the sheet. Reminder notices will be sent home periodically for students with outstanding fees.
Certified Payments accepts Visa or Mastercard credit cards.
Certified Payments usually charges an additional 4% of the total payment amount.
Certified Payments charges the convenience fee to cover credit card transaction fees and other costs. Goshen Community Schools does not receive any part of this fee.
No, you may continue to make your payment(s) directly to your child’s school.
If I have multiple children attending one school can I pay for all of their fees with a single transaction?
No. Transactions are tracked and funds applied to your child’s balance by using their student ID number. Since Certified Payments only allows you to enter one student ID number per transaction you must pay for each child’s fees in a separate transaction.
Please contact Certified Payments directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
