Refunds and Transfer of Funds
Funds remaining in student accounts at the end of the school year will stay in their account for the next school year. However, if you wish to request a refund or to transfer funds to another child’s account, provide the information needed to process refund/transfer request. Refund requests must be sent in writing to the School Nutrition Accounting Office.
Returned Check Procedures
The amount of an unpaid check plus bank fees will be charged to the student account balance. If the student account balance is not sufficient to cover the amount, Cherokee County School System has a contract with an outside company to collect checks that are returned unpaid. This company will attempt to collect a check electronically if it is returned by your bank for any reason. If your check is returned unpaid, the face amount plus an additional fee authorized by the State of Georgia will be collected by the company electronically from your account when the money is available. If you write a check to us, you are consenting to allow the contracted company to electronically collect the face amount and additional fees if funds are not available to cover the check upon initial deposit to our account.
