Returned Check Policy

Your check is welcome at Douglas County School District (DCSD). We recognize 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, DCSD has contracted with CHECKredi, a company based in Lexington, Kentucky, for collection of returned checks.

Each check written to the district should be on a commercially printed check with your name, address, and two telephone numbers. Counter or starter checks will not be accepted. When a person writes a check to DCSD, 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, now $40.00 in addition to the face value, 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 11848, Lexington, KY 40578.

Payments of the check and fee may be made online at CHECKredi 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 (866) 433-7334 by credit card, debit card or electronic check.
