Business Office Mission Statement

The Business Office is dedicated to supporting the mission of Lick-Wilmerding High School by providing effective and efficient financial and human resource services, with integrity, creativity, flexibility, respect, confidentiality, and professionalism. The Business Office team strives to provide friendly and personalized assistance for all the various members of the School Community and its partners.
The Business Office provides many services to students, families, faculty and staff while supporting the administration of the school's finances and human resources needs.

Services provided to students are the purchase and distribution of school textbooks, supplies, BART tickets and the administrative support to the food service program. Students routinely visit the Business Office, upstairs at 27 Howth Street, to purchase tickets, add monies to their food account, and inquire about these services. For related questions please contact Emily Fung at 415.333.1406 or by email at

BART Student Discount Program

Youth age 5 to 18 can apply for Youth Clipper Card and receive 50% BART fare discount, other transit discounts, and also avoid BART and other transit system surcharges. Eligible students age 13 to 18 can still use existing paper Bart Orange Tickets, but will have a ticket surcharge. Riders are encouraged to get the applicable Clipper card to avoid the surcharge.

For Flex families, LWHS is offering to help with the cost of riding BART for students enrolled in the Flexible Tuition Program.

How the program works:
  • Students must have a registered Youth Clipper Card
  • Funds are intended to be used for school and school-related activities 
  • Funds will be added to a student’s youth clipper card twice a year, in the beginning of Fall semester and beginning of Spring semester.
  • Parents/Guardians must fill out the Bart Registration Form. Note: this form is kept on file and a new form will need to be completed each year.
At the beginning of the Fall or Spring semester, students will be able to make an appointment with the Business Office to schedule a time for funds to be added.

Please email Financial Aid Officer Emily Fung to make an appointment.

The appointments will be done via Zoom. During the appointment, please be prepared to provide your login and password. (Access to Student’s Clippercard is needed in order for the Business Office to add the funds directly to the account, as well as view receipts and records). Before your appointment, your Clippercard account should be established. If access is unavailable, the appointment will have to be rescheduled. 

If you have any questions regarding the BART program, please contact Financial Aid Officer Emily Fung in the Business Office.

Student Textbooks

Textbooks are included in tuition and distributed during Bookstore hours on the first day of school, from 3–5pm, Monday–Friday. For special circumstances, please email Cynthia Yu for assistance.

If your class schedule has changed or is different than the one we are working with and you need to exchange a book, simply bring the book(s) you wish to exchange up to the Business Office with proof of schedule change from Academic Scheduler and Registrar Erica Obando. Without proof of an authorized schedule change, books cannot be exchanged or returned. There are no exceptions.

If you are dropping a class and have received books you will need to return those books immediately or you will be billed for them. 

If books are lost or stolen, they will not be replaced but they may be purchased from the Business Office. More information will be provided when textbooks are distributed.

Frosh Orientation is set aside for 9th graders ONLY textbook distribution. Although the books are given to you in a paper bag you might want to bring your backpack to school on these days. You may also go throughout the rest of the week, same time, same place as returning students, but it may be busier because all students can get books then.

Business Office Hours

The Business Office is open Monday–Friday, 8am to 12:00pm and 12:30 to 4:30pm. (Closed for lunch 12:00–12:30pm.)
