2021-2022 Educational Benefits & Reimbursement

Dear MNVA Families,

In a traditional school, an application for educational benefits is often referred to as a free and reduced lunch program application. Due to the fact that the Minnesota Virtual Academy is virtual, we do not have a lunch program for our students. Instead, qualification for educational benefits will result in discounted outing fees and mileage reimbursement (as shown below). The acquired information will also help MNVA obtain grants and funding for programs that can improve our school and offer direct benefits to your child. The information provided is strictly confidential.

Educational benefits that will be provided if you qualify:

  • Computer use for school work

  • 50% discount on outing fees (percent is based on eligibility for benefits)

  • $0.15/mileage reimbursement for school-related travel (includes outings, face-to-face attendance, and required testing)

For further information or to apply for discounted outing event.
For questions regarding educational benefits please email MNVA at info@hsd294.us

PAY SCHOOL FOR EVENTS 

MNVA part of the Houston Public Schools is pleased to bring you the online convenience of our new payment processing system, PaySchools. This program allows you to make school-related payments online via e-check or credit card at your convenience all from our school’s Website.

How It Works
Access our online payment processing system by clicking on the event you are interested in. The first time you access PaySchools, you will be asked to create a username and password. After you login, simply select the item(s) you wish to purchase, set up students for your account, then choose to pay by e-check or credit card. To pay by e-check (directly debiting your bank account), you will enter your bank’s ABA routing number and personal bank account number. To make your purchase by credit card, enter the account number and expiration date for your VISA, MasterCard or Discover credit card. After you complete your purchase, an e-mail confirmation and receipt will immediately be sent to you. PaySchools uses “Secure Sockets Layer” (SSL) software, requires passwords throughout the program, and does not store personal bank or credit card information to ensure privacy and security for users.
