Using the Balance Alert Setup page, you can define thresholds for students' lunch account balances and fee account balances. If students' account balances go over a set threshold, an alert appears on the student page indicating that the students' accounts are in deficit.
The balance alert also appears in the PowerSchool Student and Parent portal if the Do not show the lunch balance on parent/student pages checkbox has not been selected during district setup.
The Balance Alert email function automatically sends parents or guardians email messages informing them that their students' accounts are in deficit.
Set Up the Balance Alert
