Worthless Check Policy

The Board of Education authorizes the Superintendent to charge a fee for worthless checks and to implement procedures for collection of worthless checks written to the school system, including referring the matter to the district attorney for prosecution.

Uncollected fund balances in the Child Nutrition Program will not be carried over from one fiscal year to the next. Monies will be taken from non-public funds at the end of the fiscal year to cover the amount of the worthless checks. When payment has been received, the funds will be deposited into the non-public fund account.
