The EZPay system will be open for payments beginning Monday, July 31.  SPS EZPay is a secure and convenient website application that allows parents to add to their child’s meal account, pay school, class and activity fees, and/or tuition over the Internet using any American Express, Visa or MasterCard (including Debit Visa and MasterCard).  It may take up to 24 hours for the deposit or payment to be posted to the student’s account.  Payments are posted daily to your child’s account at 6:00 a.m.  You are able to view your child’s balance and access a history report as well.  Through August 31, a fee of $2.50 will be charged for each transaction.  Beginning September 1, EZPay is increasing that fee to $2.75 per transaction.  Please note that you may make payments for school fees, deposits, tuition, and into lunch accounts on the same transaction.  Only one fee will apply as long as you do all the transactions at one time.  The Westerville City School District cannot take credit card payments at our office or at the schools; this is only available over the Internet.  The use of EZPay is optional; Westerville City Schools will continue to accept cash and checks for payment of fees or deposits into meal accounts.

To use the EZPay online system, please visit the Westerville City Schools website at www.westerville.k12.oh.us.  In the “Resources” section at the bottom of the page, click on “EZPay” and you will be directed to the EZPay website.  Or, you may go there directly by entering the following web address: https://www.spsezpay.com/SPSEZpay/NT/Login.aspx.

Parents who wish to use the on-line system must first create an account.  You will need to know your student’s ID number to create the account.  If you do not know or cannot find the student ID number, you may find it on your child’s report card, school schedule, or by logging into the Parent Portal of Power School.  You may also stop by your child’s school building and obtain it from the Building Secretary.  Please note that for security purposes, you must obtain this information in person.  No personal information about your student is available on-line and the school district will not have access to or keep your credit card information on file.  You will need to re-enter your credit card number each time you use the on-line system.

To get started, simply click on the EZPay link listed above.  You will be transferred to the payment site where you can complete the registration page and add your child’s name and ID number.  Once you have registered, created a password, and added your student to your account, you will not need the student ID number again.  To pay fees, click on the Activity Fees button to begin selecting fees or to pay for tuition.  For meal payments, click on the Payment Center button to make a deposit into your child’s lunch account.

Please note that once payments are processed through EZPay, refunds cannot be issued by EZPay.  If you are moving out of the district and require a refund, or if you need to transfer funds from one account to another, you will need to contact the Food Service office at 614/797-5993 or thomasrl@westerville.k12.oh.us.

Customer service questions regarding the EZPay system can be directed to info@spsezpay.com.

Questions regarding your child’s school fees, activity fees, or tuition, may be directed to your school’s secretary.  Questions regarding your child’s lunch account may be directed to your school’s cafeteria manager or by calling the Food Service Office at 614/797-5993.
