  • Meal Payment Portal Changed to LINQ Connect

    We’re excited to share AESD's meal payments portal, TITAN Family Portal, has upgraded to LINQ Connect. There’s no need to change your username and password, all your information has already been transferred to the new app. 
    Here are some exciting upgrades to expect: 
    • A simple, fresh look to allow for better accessibility
    • An interactive dashboard to view all family members in one profile
    • A resource center to access help guides
    • Streamlined menus requires you to click less to do more
    Visit your app store and find “LINQ Connect” available in the Google Play Store now and the Apple store available soon to download the new app and enjoy these new features. Just log in with your existing username and password. If you use a browser, visit to log in. 
    If you don’t use our online meal payments portal, LINQ Connect allows you to set up one-time or recurring payments for your student’s meal. You can also view previous transactions, set spending limits, transfer funds between students, set low balance notifications, and more. It’s an easy way to manage meal payments without the hassle of sending cash.

    After January 1, reduced-price meals are at no charge.

    The AZ Department of Education has announced that from January 2023 through June 2024 all reduced-price meals will be at no cost to the student. Students must be eligible for the reduced-price status to receive meals with the price waived to $0.00.

    Meal applications are accepted all year!

    You can still apply for free and reduced meals. Applications are available at your student’s school or online by clicking here.
