6151 - BAD CHECKS AND UNCOLLECTABLE DEBTS

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

If efforts to collect an amount due the Corporation have not been successful and, in the opinion of the Treasurer/Chief Financial Officer further efforts to collect the amount due are unlikely to be successful, the account will be forwarded to a collection agency for further action.

Adopted 6/11/14
