Scrip and eScrip

There are 2 types of SCRIP fundraising at MIT, 'Scrip' and 'eScrip', see definitions below.

Scrip and eScrip are major sources of fundraising for our school. Scrip dollars go directly back to our school. The Parent Teacher Network (PTN) determines which projects/requests are funded out of these dollars donated by the families, friends and supporters of MITA.

What is Scrip?

Scrip is a term that means "substitute money". They are negotiable gift certificates. MIT Academy purchases them at a small discount and sells them at full price. Supporters pay full price (i.e. $25.00 of Safeway) and receive full price value. The difference is given to the school by the stores participating.

Scrip certificates have no expiration date on the vast majority of certificates. Scrip may be used at any branch of the store unless there is an exception printed on the certificate (IHOP and Food4Less are examples).

Phone Messaging

MIT Academy uses an automated Phone Messaging service to communicate with students and their guardians.

Typically, 3-4 calls are sent home per week for informational purposes. Additionally, calls are placed home when a student is absent for 1 or more periods of the school day.

Phone Messages can be heard again by calling, toll-free 1 (877) 698-3261, press option 1, then enter the phone # the message was received on. The most recent message and a number of previous messages can be retrieved as well.
