When a school calculates balances by student, the balance displayed on the student’s dashboard, POS screen, online statements and payments only reflects activity for the selected student and not his/her siblings. 

Example: if a student is part of blended family and the balance is tracked by student, then any household associated with that student can add “lunch” money to the student account and see the current student’s balance for cafeteria. At the same time, each student associated with these households will not share the same balance. This also means that the lunch money will need to be loaded individually for each student. This is a great option for schools with many blended households.
