    • What is Clever?

      Clever enables students to use QR Codes on badges (Grades K-2) in school and log in through Google at home to access applications used on the K-4 grade levels.  It simplifies the process of logging in multiple times which can use up precious class time. It also decreases frustration in students having to put their credentials multiple times. In grades 5-12, Clever is used as a single sign-on for students to log in once with their Google account and then access different applications without the need to sign on again.  

       

      Clever sets the best practices in privacy, security, and data control to help districts and applications keep student data safe.

      Click on the registration box at the bottom of the screen:

      • Enter Nazareth Area School District

    After you register, log in each time with either Google or your Username and password that you created during registration. The NASD does not handle the passwords for that. You will need to contact SchoolCafe for password changes.

    HOW DO I MAKE A PAYMENT?

    To pay at school: You can make a payment to your child’s lunch account by sending in a check to the school office. Checks should be made payable to the NASD with your child’s name in the memo and sent in an envelope with your child’s name on the envelope as well. Be sure if you are paying for more than one student at a time, to write on the envelope how much money towards each account.

    To make an online payment: Log in to the School Cafe website and choose: Make a Payment. In the program you can use a credit card or checking account. You can set an auto payment each time your child’s account goes below the dollar amount designated during setup.  You can also add an alert to notify you when the balance is low. There is a small processing fee each time you use the online payment.

    HOW DO I VIEW MY CHILD’S PURCHASES?

    Under your child’s picture in the School Cafe dashboard, you have options to view your child’s purchases and put restrictions on purchases. 

    • To view purchases - click on Purchase History

    • To add restrictions such as No Peanut Butter products, no Juices, etc.-- Click on Purchase Restrictions

    • To set up Automatic Payment - add your information for a credit card or bank account to automatically add a designated amount of money each time the account is at 0.
