This statement reflects payments made through the Schoolspeak billing account for the first half of the 2018 school year. Payments received from July 1, 2018 - December 31, 2018 can be accessed through your FACTS Management account. Please login to your FACTS account and follow these prompts: Click on "View Details". Next, click on "View Payment Summary". Make sure the year reflected in the drop down box says "2018". The amount reflected shows the payments received through December 31, 2018. Please print a copy of this statement for your records. The tax Id number for the school is reflected on both of these statements.
