Tax Credit Donation
If you would like to make a tax credit contribution using a credit or debit card, please make your contribution on our secure online system at www.cusd80.com/taxcredit or you can make donations directly from your Infinite Campus Parent Portal. Check or money order donations can be dropped off in the front office.
Portal accounts will allow parents to check their child's academic progress at any time during the school year.
In order to utilize tax credit monies, the State of Arizona set forth a requirement that all school districts must charge a fee for enrolled students to participate in extracurricular activities. Primary guardians will need to continue to make payments through Infinite Campus so that the fees will link directly to their children and so they have a record of their payments. All other community members will be able to continue to utilize the third party online donation website. In addition to automating the fee collection process, both electronic fee payment systems help CUSD move towards becoming paperless.
