Check acceptance policy
Your check is welcome at all schools in the Whitfield County Schools.
Whitfield County Schools recognizes that occasionally a parent 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, the Whitfield County Schools has partnered with CHECKredi of Alabama, a company based in Huntsville, Al. for collection of returned checks.
Each person writing a check to a school or the School System 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 a school or the School System, 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, may be debited from the same account.
If the check and fee are not collected electronically, then CHECKredi will contact you by mail and by telephone in order for you to make arrangements to pay. Payments may be made to CHECKredi by mailing to 4925 Sparkman Drive or to P.O. Box 3829 Huntsville, AL 35810. Payments of the check and fee may be made electronically at www.checkredi.com by using a credit card, debit card, or electronic check without additional fee. For a convenience fee, payments may be made over the telephone by credit or debit card or electronic check by calling toll free (877) 524-7334.
