MEAL ACCOUNT BALANCES AND PAYMENT OPTIONS
To view recent purchases, check balances, make online payments, and set-up low balance alerts please sign up for a MySchoolBucks account. To avoid issues locating your student be sure to select Texas Leadership Charter Academy as the ISD and not the local ISD.
Cash and check payments can be sent to school with your student to be given to their teacher and a receipt will be sent back home to keep for your record. Payments can also be made in the front office of all campuses. Payments may take 24 hrs to post to student accounts.
Negative balance notices are sent home with students at least once a week and higher balances may be mailed home as well.
