You will use PushCoin to pay all student fees beginning with the 2023-2024 school year. If you have any questions about fees or using PushCoin, please contact the business office at BusinessServices@rtsd26.org or 224-612-7327.
After completing your student’s registration, you will receive an email from PushCoin. It may take 2-3 days to arrive in your inbox (make sure to check your SPAM folder). The email will include a PushCoin registration code that you will use to add a student to your account. There will be a unique registration code for each student.
Once you receive that email from PushCoin, you should follow these instructions...

STEP 2: ADD YOUR STUDENT(S) TO YOUR ACCOUNT
- Add your student to your PushCoin account by clicking ADD STUDENT. Enter the unique PushCoin registration code you received in the PushCoin email, and click SUBMIT.
- Information about the student should appear on the screen. Verify the information is correct and click I CONFIRM.
If you have multiple students, repeat STEP 2 for each student.
STEP 3: MAKE PAYMENT
