HAMILTON - Avoiding that emergency trip to bring a student lunch money is looking easier.
The Marion County Board of Education voted during its monthly meeting on Tuesday, June 11, to enter into a contract with Pams Lunchroom of Englewood Cliffs, N.J., a company that supports credit and debit card payments for school-related expenses.
Marion County Superintendent of Education Ann West said the service will enable parents and guardians to fund students’ lunchroom accounts remotely.
The county school systems’ chief financial officer, Clint Green, said online transactions have a $1.95 fee, which will be included on the ticket when finalizing payments.
