Payments – Family Access

The BAC program is tuition based, it is not funded by Rockford Public Schools. Returning students may not
enroll if there is a previous or remaining balance on their Family Access account. We do not offer sibling
discounts. The BAC program is set-up by child, not by family or parent. Each child enrolled will have their own
account. You can locate your child’s account through Family Access. A bill for services scheduled for the next
month is generated in your Family Access account when the schedule is being entered. The bill must be paid in
full by the 25th of the month for those services which are scheduled to occur in the following month. Payments
are made by logging into Family Access using the Fee Management tab and paid via e-Funds. Tuition is
charged on the basis of enrollment, not attendance, i.e., illness, vacation. If BAC is open, you will be charged if your child was scheduled to attend.

Receipts for payments can be found in Family Access.

Income Tax Information is found in Family Access. Additional copies will be available for a $10.00 charge/per request.
