Question: Field Trip Payments

What online payment options do you use for your PTO? One of our main functions is writing checks to field trip organizations for our classrooms. Our school does not have its own checking account. The teacher gather all the funds from the students/parents and we write the check and deposit the money.

Hi opactreasurer,
So, I'm a little unclear how the school could not have a checking account. What about the school district? Best case scenario, you'd want to be able to donate that money to the school to support field trips. You want the school to be responsible for the actual field trips.

What has been done in the past?
