Scrip is a certificate used in place of cash or checks at participating stores and restaurants. Anyone (family and friends) can purchase scrip. The scrip program costs families no additional money. Each family is responsible for earning $200.00 in rebates per school year or you have the option of buying out of Scrip for a cost of $200.00 per school year. What are rebates? Rebates are the discounted amount each retailer sells their cards at. Families receive dollar-for-dollar value at all participating stores. Scrip, purchased by family or friends USING YOUR CUSTOMER NUMBER, will apply to your participation. The Advisory Commission recommends an average purchase of $200.00 per month ($2400.00 per year). Families may prefer to contribute $200.00 in lieu of Scrip purchases.

Paper Scrip is a form of gift certificate or card that the school purchases at a discount and resells to supporters at the face value for which it can be redeemed. Depending on the vendor, the school can earn from 1% to 25% of the face value of the scrip certificate.
Each vendor provides its own Scrip, some with the words “Gift Certificate” printed on it. At the store it spends just like cash; there are no catches or hidden charges. If your purchases require change, each store has its own policy.
This Web-based program (www.eScrip.com) enables a portion of credit card and ATM card purchases with participating merchants to be and viewed by the registered family member. Families must create an account and register their cards online. Purchases and contributions can be tracked
