2014-2015 Student Transportation Fees and Payment Process

Click to view larger

Elk Island Public Schools’ (EIPS) Board of Trustees has approved student transportation fees for the 2014-2015 school year, and families are now able to pay Student Transportation fees through ACORN, which is the same process that has been used this year for school fees. ACORN is accessible through the Parent Portal of PowerSchool or Student Quick Pay. This system replaces the online transportation fee payment process previously housed on the division website. This is great news for parents as you will now be able to pay all school-related fees in one centralized area. 


In May, Student Transportation sent out invoices to all applicable families regarding 2014-2015 transportation fees. This communication included information on how to access the ACORN system and pay your transportation fees online. The deadline for paying transportation fees is June 30, 2014. Transportation fees will increase after this date. Save time by paying your fees online through the ACORN system.

More information (including links to the Parent Portal and Student Quick Pay, additional instructions, and examples about reviewing and paying your 2014-2015 transportation fees online) is available on the division website at

If you have any questions about the invoice you received or about paying your fees online, please contact EIPS’ Student Transportation at 780-417-8151 or by using the online contact form at

New School Fee Invoicing System – ACORN

Thank you very much for a great first year using the Acorn Online QuickPay system.  Please continue to go online to check that all your school fees have been paid for the 2013 – 14 school year as field trips and year end activities may be added until school lets out for the summer. 
Online payments will be available throughout the summer, however there may be an interruption of service during non business hours the week of July 14 – 18 as the system is upgraded.
All fees will be available at the beginning of September for the 2014 – 2015 school year.  PLEASE NOTE that Junior High and Senior High fees may change as courses are added and deleted.  The course change deadline is September 15, 2014.
If you have any questions regarding your students’ fees, please contact Lorna Soldan, Business Manager at 780-632-3341.
