New Online Payment Portal

This fall, parents of Salem-Keizer students have a new, convenient option for paying student fees.

Through the Online Payment Portal, parents can use a credit card to pay athletic fees, library book fees, purchase ASB cards, make a donation, and take care of other payment transactions. The Online Payment portal processing fee is the same as the fee charged when making a credit card payment in the school office (2.75 percent).

The Online Payment Portal does not replace the food service payment system, EZSchoolPay.

Find a link to the Online Payment Portal on our school website, or visit https://skpay.salkeiz.k12.or.us.
