Good Shepherd Lutheran School Scrip Program

What is scrip? Scrip is simply gift cards. Hundreds of restaurants, grocery stores, gas stations and retailers participate. Merchants donate a percentage of the gift card’s value to Good Shepherd. Why should I use scrip? It’s an easy way to reduce your child’s tuition and support the Tuition Assistance Program .

What else do I need to know?

● Using Scrip allows families to set aside 60% of Scrip proceeds as a credit toward tuition. The child designated must be a current/future student at GSLS. The student must be either a son/daughter, grandchild, niece/nephew, cousin or godchild.

● Remaining 40% of scrip proceeds go to the Tuition Assistance Program and covers shipping and other costs.

● If a family does not have a qualifying child at GS or does not designate a child, all proceeds will go to the Tuition Assistance Program.

● Families may use any scrip credit toward K-8 tuition only. It cannot be applied to registration fees, book fees, technology fees, milk program fees, hot lunch fees, field trip fees, athletic fees, after school care costs, etc.

● Families with younger children may have their credits applied toward future tuition costs once their oldest child enrolls in Kindergarten.

● Credits cannot be used for preschool.

● If a family leaves GSLS and/or GSLC, any scrip credits will be transferred to the Tuition Assistance Program. Families will not be refunded any unused credit.

● Program will run from July 1 – June 30. Credits will be applied toward the upcoming school year. For example, if program runs from July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021, any credits will be applied to the 2021-2022 school year.

● Tuition credits will not earn interest. If a family has a check returned more than once due to non-sufficient funds, a $30 fee payable to Good Shepherd Lutheran School will be charged. The School Board may limit a family’s scrip ordering privileges to “cash only” after two NSF checks are tendered.

● Program oversight will be the responsibility of the School Board.
