6151 - BAD CHECKS

When the Corporation receives a check from a student or parent that, when deposited, is returned marked "insufficient funds", the Superintendent shall provide an opportunity for the payor to make proper payment or to arrange for a satisfactory payment schedule. If payment is not received within fifteen (15) days, the payment schedule is not adhered to, or the monies do not appear to be collectable, the School Board authorizes the Superintendent to remove the fee or charge from the Corporation's Accounts Receivable and to take appropriate action against the student and/or the parents.
