Payment Methods

Payment for meals is accepted either via check or credit card. To pay via check, please make all check payments out to Shaker Food Service. To pay via credit card, please refer to the information below on using PayForIt.net.

Online Payment for Meals & Fees

The Shaker Heights City School District has enhanced its online payment service through a partnership with PayForIt.net. Using your credit card, you may pay for school meals, student fees, and seasonal items such as prom tickets, Advanced Placement test fees, and Woodbury 6th Grade Camp, Clap Out T-shirts, and Yearbooks.

How It Works

PayForIt.net gives you the ability to:

  • Deposit funds to your student’s account via credit card at your convenience, 24/7. The money will typically appear in your student’s account within 24 hours.
  • Set up a single account for all the students in your family.
  • Set up automatic recurring payments to your student’s meal account.
  • Generate reports on your student’s cafeteria purchases.
  • Check your student’s account balance and request e-mail notification when the balance falls below a specified amount. (Any funds remaining on your student’s meal account at the end of the school year will be carried over into the new school year.)
  • Maintain a complete record of your payments.

How to Get Started

PayForIt.net is secure and easy to use. To set up an account, you will need a valid e-mail address, a credit card, and your student’s ID number. There is no transaction fee.
