All returned checks will be referred to as NSF (non-sufficient funds) for purposes of these procedures. Checks may be returned for a variety of reasons including closed accounts. All returned checks will be subject to a $10.00 fee, and will be handled by accounting, except for food service. The procedure for food service NSF checks will not change.
Accounting will notify the school by using the NSF Check notification form in outlook. The school will fill in the account codes/amounts and forward the form back to accounting. To assist in timely collection of NSF checks we ask you to return the information to us within twenty-four hours.
Accounting will pursue collection through written notification and telephone contact. If accounting is unable to collect the funds, the check will be turned over to our outside collection service. If the check was for a prepaid item such as a yearbook, the parent will be given ample time to pay for the purchase. If the funds are not collected, the student will not receive the item.
Any amounts collected will be returned to accounting and coded to the appropriate budget. The $10.00 NSF fee will be coded to a separate account. Accounting will notify schools of collected funds by using the NSF check re-deposit form in Outlook.
All NSF payments should be paid or mailed to the Accounting. To avoid duplication of effort please contact accounting if a parent notifies you regarding an NSF check, or if you receive payment of an outstanding NSF item.
