SCMS Finance Office - Returned Checks

FCPS utilizes a third party check collection service, Checkredi Payment Services to reduce the administrative burden placed on school personnel in managing returned checks. A returned check fee will be charged to the check writer in addition to the face value of the check. The Commonwealth of Virginia allows a returned check fee of up to $50. FCPS gladly accepts checks and ACH electronic debits (e-checks) from your bank account for payment of various school related purchases and fees.  In the event a check or ACH electronic debit is not honored by our bank, the returned item will be sent to Checkredi Payment Services for collection.  Your account will be debited electronically for the face value amount and charged a fee of $30 per returned item.   If funds are not available, a Checkredi Payment Services representative may contact you to arrange payment.  By issuing a check or authorizing an ACH electronic debit from your bank account, you agree to these terms and conditions. Please include the following information on your check:

  • Full Name
  • Street Address
  • Phone number

Contact Checkredi Payment Services directly should you have questions about a returned check or ACH transaction at 1-800-742-2925 or customerservice@checkredi.com.
