Your check is welcome at Polk County Schools. We recognize that occasionally you may inadvertently overdraw a checking account and a check may be returned by your bank. In order to recover these funds in a private and professional manner, Polk County Schools has contracted with CHECKredi, LLC, a company based in Huntsville, AL for collection of returned checks.
Each person writing a check to the school should write the check on a commercially printed check with your name, address, and one phone number. Counter or starter checks will not be accepted. When a person writes a check to the school, the person writing the check agrees that, if the check is returned that it may be represented electronically on the same account, and that the fee established by law, starting at $25.00 up to 5% of the face value of the check, may be debited from the same account.
CHECKredi will contact you by mail and by telephone in order to make arrangements to pay before attempting to represent the check electronically. Payments may be made to CHECKredi’s office by mail to P.O. Box 3829, Huntsville, AL 35810. Payments of the check and fee may be made online at www.checkredi.com using a credit card, debit card or electronic check without any additional fees. For a convenience fee, payments may be made over the telephone at 1-800-239-1222 by credit card, debit card or electronic check. Payment should not be made at a school or the district office.
