PowerSchool PowerLunch Unable to post to all student from district.


This question is regarding posting PowerLunch deposits to student accounts from the district level.

Currently, our staff must enter the school site to post PowerLunch payments for each student. My question is, is it possible to post payments for students at the district level? If it is possible, what roles/access would the user need?

Currently when this is attempted the message received is "Student does not belong to this school".

Thank you for any ideas/help on this topic.

PowerLunch offers the ability for staff members to submit lunch payment deposits for a student at the school level and not at the district level since the student is enrolled at the school level and not district level.
