New accounts needed for Payschools


The Horseheads district uses the PaySchools online meal payment program. The company has now created PaySchools Central and no longer supports the old platform. As a result, parents using PaySchools must now set up a brand new account in PaySchools Central.

Please click the link below for information on how to create a new account. If you have questions, please call (607) 739-5601, x3671 or email sblunt@gstboces.org.
