Direct Debit Payments

Direct Debit Setup Instructions

If you’d like to set up direct debit payments, there are two options:

Option 1: You can add your bank account to your parent portal and log in each time a payment is due to make a payment.

  • After logging in to the Parent Portal click on ‘Settings’
  • At the bottom of the page click ‘Add Payment Method’
  • Select ACH
  • Enter your routing number (ABA code) and account number
  • DO NOT CLICK Enable Automatic Withdrawal
  • Within a day or two, your checking account will have two small withdrawals taken out of your account.  This is for Sandbox to verify it’s an actual account.
  • Once those two withdrawals are made, you must log back in to the parent portal using the instructions above and enter those two small amounts.
  • Again, click on ‘Settings’
  • At the bottom of the page follow the instructions to verify the account.  You must enter those two small withdrawal amounts.
