FAQ’s for Parents


With current national attention being focused on children’s health and wellness issues, Mandan Public School District’s Child Nutrition Department is excited to provide parents a convenient, easy and secure online prepayment service to deposit money into your child’s school meal account at any time. This service also provides parents the ability to view your child’s account balance through a web site called MySchoolBucks.com. By having money in each child’s account prior to entering the cafeteria, we find the lunch lines move along much faster so your child has more time to eat and be with friends.


Also, parents will have the ability to print out a copy of their child’s eating history report. This history report will show you all dates and times that your child has purchased a breakfast and or lunch within the past thirty days.


To access these services:

Click on the MySchoolBucks.com link above. From this site you will create your account and add money to your child’s school meal account. All you need is your child’s name, student ID number ( if your child does not know this number you can find their student ID # in your Power School Parent Portal) and school ZIP code. The instructions listed will guide you through the easy online account set up process.


Things to know:

> If you have more than one child in the District you can handle all online prepayments from the same online account.

> Payments can be made with a major credit or debit card.

> The convenience fee of $1.95 will be paid by the Mandan School District. Mandan Public School District will not profit from the use of this site.


We are very excited to offer these new services. However, if you choose not to take advantage of the online prepayment service you may continue to make advance payments via cash or check, which should be made payable to the Mandan Public School District. Please write your child’s full name on the check.


If you have any questions about these new services, please feel free to contact Becky Heinert at 751-6500.    

Title I

6 days ago

Roosevelt Elementary School is currently in the fifth year operating as a Schoolwide school. The Title I School-wide Program has allowed us to serve all students in reading and writing. This allows us to better serve all of the students at Roosevelt.

Method of Delivery
• Pullout
• In-Class

All schools must ensure that services provided by Title I personnel, regardless of the model of delivery used, are supplemental.

Title I services are supplemental in terms of greater instructional intensity and opportunity to learn.

Research offers no conclusive evidence for superiority of either the pullout model or alternative models.

The state Title I office does not endorse on instructional delivery method over another. The primary responsibility for the choice of instructional models is at the school building level.

The Mandan Public Schools provides a pullout, in-class and extended year programs. These methods are chosen by the principal and Title I Staff. Each school chooses what method they feel will be most effective for their students.

Annual Review Meeting

Roosevelt Elementary School required to hold an annual review meeting to review all the components of our Title I program such as the student selection process, professional development, the parent involvement policy, the compact, classroom teacher communication, assessment methods, service methods, curriculum, and any other items important to the operation of our Title I programs. This meeting will be conducted in the spring of the year and you will be notified when this will take place.

Compact for Learning

Roosevelt Elementary School must develop a written school-parent compact jointly with parents for children participating in Title I activities, services and programs. These compacts have outlined how parents, the school staff and students will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement and also build a school-parent partnership.

Parental Involvement

Research has strongly linked the correlation between parental involvement and student academic success. Roosevelt Elementary School values and promotes parental involvement.

Research shows that children do better in school when parents talk often with teachers and become involved in the school. There are many ways that parents and teachers can communicate with each other, rather than relying on the scheduled parent-teacher conferences. Close communications between parents and teachers can help the student.

Another good investment in your child's education is to volunteer. Depending upon parent's availability, interests, and the needs of the school, the opportunities are endless. Some suggestions include: lunchroom monitor, tutoring, library aide, classroom speaker on a specific topic of interest, and concession workers at school events. Parents should take stock of their skills and interests to volunteer. School personnel may not know what parents want to do as a volunteer.

Roosevelt Elementary School has developed a Parental Involvement Action Plan that incorporates parenting, communicating, volunteering, learning at home, decision making and collaborating.
