As of Jan. 1, BFA has moved to a new payment processing system for our field trips, sports and after school activities (such as music classes and summer camp). This new system is called My School Bucks, which probably sounds familiar as many of you already use this system for school lunch payments. This system will replace RevTrak. The change to this system was driven by Douglas County School District and is being used by all schools across DCSD.
With this new system, we are finding a few differences from what we are all used to. Please note the following important items:
1) The parameters of this new system DO NOT allow us to extend enrollment deadlines for any event. You will need to pay special attention to registration deadlines sent to you by your student’s teacher/coach and complete your registrations before the close date.
2) Due to this system being used by all of DCSD, you may see activities from some/all schools in our district. All BFA events will begin with “BFA” in the title. Therefore you can filter your search using “BFA” to only show activities or events for our school.
3) We are finding that the MySchoolBucks website is more user friendly and strongly recommend that you use the website for all registrations rather than the MySchoolBucks mobile app. They are still fine tuning the app and until it is complete, please use the website for registrations to ensure important permission items are not missed.
