SchoolCash Online is our preferred method of payment

Gloucester County Public Schools is striving to improve safety and reduce risk wherever possible. One safety measure is minimizing cash and check payments at our schools. To accomplish this, we use SchoolCash Online for all school items and activity fees. If you haven't already created a free account, we encourage all parents to register, so you'll be ready to make online payments from home: both now and in the future as more school items become available again.

Benefits to parents and schools

You will help increase efficiency and security at your school by making payments directly into your school's bank account. This limits the number of people entering the school, reduces risk of lost payments, and allows teachers and office staff to focus on helping students and not counting cash. In addition, you are automatically informed about school activities!

Registering takes Iess than two minutes: visit https://gcps.schoolcashonline.com
