The new platform, Titan School Solutions, is part of the LinQ family, which includes the programs the district has used.
Titan enables the district to integrate multiple services and offers a new family account option for meals. While individual student accounts are still available, a family account allows multiple students to pay for meals from a single account.
The district has transferred student account balances to Titan. Parents must go to family.titank12.com to sign up for individual or family accounts. Each student’s PowerSchool number is required to enroll.
Free and discounted meal requests can also be filled out in the new program. Families don’t need to sign up for an account to fill out a meal application.
