Creating and attaching items
Items are the individual school items, trips, fees, clothing, fundraising items, food items, etc. that are available to parents or the public to purchase through SchoolCash Online. You define the items in the SchoolCash Catalog and then attach them to associated students to make their parents/guardians aware of availability.
