Writing a bad check and not making good on that check is a crime. The district has and will take recourse to recover funds by appealing to the District Magistrate for collection. In order to avoid this, persons who have received an invoice from the district are encouraged to pay the outstanding balance and fees in cash or credit card as soon as possible. The district reserves the right to refuse checks from any individual that has presented 3 or more checks returned for insufficient funds during any school year.
If your check is still returned the district will charge a $25 processing. This fee is consistent with fees charged by other area businesses for bad checks.
If you have any questions regarding this procedure please contact the Business Office at 570-744-2521.
