PaySchools Central

New for Fall 2023!

Please keep your eyes open for information regarding this new system in mid-July. 
Please wait until mid-July as this information may be updated as the vendor provides more information

Bowling Green City School is changing online payment systems.

Beginning this fall, fees will be paid using PaySchools Central. This new system is more cost-effective, has more advanced features, and will be more convenient for our parents to use. 

If you had a balance in your child's lunch account, this amount will appear in PaySchools Central once you set up an account. To continue submitting payments, parents/guardians are required to create an account with PaySchools Central.

The site can be accessed via an online portal at or via a convenient mobile app. To set up a PaySchools’ account, go to the portal and select the “Register” option from the menu. The portal will guide you through the steps you need to follow to establish your account. You will  need your child's student ID number (lunch code) to link your child to your account.
