Your check is welcome at all Russell County Schools. 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, the Russell County School District has contracted with Nexcheck, LLC, for collection of returned checks.
Each person writing a check to a school or the School District should write the check on a commercially printed check with your name, address, drivers license # & state, and one phone number. Counter or starter checks are NOT accepted. When a person writes a check to a school or the School District, he or she agrees that, if the check is returned, it may be represented electronically on the same account, and that the fee established by law, now $30, may be debited from the same account.
If the check and fee are not collected electronically, then Nexcheck will contact the check writer by mail and by telephone to make payment arrangements. All payments need to be made directly to Nexcheck, P.O. Box 19688, Birmingham, AL 35219. For a convenience fee, payments of both check and fee may be made electronically at www.nexcheck.com or over the phone (800-639-2435) using a credit card, debit card or electronic check.
