Parents/Guardians have the opportunity to pay for school and district fees online. SD62 uses School Cash Online, a program which provides parents with the convenience of paying school and district fees online.

To sign up to use School Cash Online, please follow these steps:

  1. Read the Instructions
  2. Fill out the Consent Form

You must fill out a separate consent form for each child

Already signed up for an account during online bus registration?

Great! Please skip to “Step 6” in the instructions linked above.

Why do you need to fill out a consent form?

The system is designed to extract some of your child’s personal information contained in MyEdBC (Ministry school database) with School Cash Online. This information will be shared through a secured FTP (file transfer protocol) site (similar to online banking) and will only be used for the purpose of student fees and online payments.

We hope to have the first information transfer complete by mid November. Once your child’s information is transferred, you will be able to sign into your school cash online account, choose your child and attach him or her to your account to pay their fees.

We will send you more information closer to mid November regarding the second phase of the online program.

For inquiries about account setup and using the system, please email schoolcashschool@sd62.bc.ca.

For general information about fees, please contact your child’s school.

Parents volunteering for field trips or classroom work require a volunteerCriminal Record Check when working with our students. This needs to be completed and on file at the school office prior to volunteering. Criminal record checks for the Sooke School District are to be completed through the Ministry of Justice.

Driving any students in a private vehicle also requires a completed Criminal Records Check as well as a driver’s abstract from ICBC and  a copy of your valid driver’s license and insurance showing a minimum of $1,000,000 liability.  These are now required for all volunteers when driving for field trips and must be in to the office at least 72 HOURS PRIOR to driving or attending a field trip. Please see the link with information below.

CRC and parent volunteer

The school office will keep your CRC and Drivers abstract on file for three years from the date of its receipt. Vehicle insurance and drivers license must be submitted yearly.

Thank you again for volunteering your time so our children can have the best educational opportunities.
