The Shelby County R-IV School Board approved policy 3350 which pertains to fines, bad checks and unpaid lunch bills, during its regular school board meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 8, in the middle school library.
   Board Approves Late
   Fee Policy
   After months of discussion and trying to figure out the best way to approach the task of collecting unpaid bills, the board approved a new policy last week.
   The new policy states that every effort shall be made to collect payment for lost or damaged text books, damage or vandalism to school property. The fine money that is collected will be deposited in the appropriate account in order to charge replacement costs for books, materials, equipment or repaired property to the appropriate budget item.
   As for bad checks, every effort will be made to collect all payments on bad checks. The bad check will be returned and the person who wrote the check will be contacted by letter. If the letter doesn’t result in payment, the district’s Central Office will contact the person. If payment isn’t received within 30 days, the district will contact the prosecuting attorney’s office, where the district will seek payment for the cost of the bad check as well as any fines and costs associated with the check.
   As for unpaid lunch bills, every effort will be made to collect for unpaid meal charges. Limits have been set for notification of debt at $25 per student or $50 per family. At that point, students will be limited to one breakfast and one lunch a day. Parents of students reaching that level will receive a letter outlining the meal charges for their student.
   When they reach the level of $50 per child or $100 per family, the district will contact the parents via phone. If it reaches $100 per student and $200 per family, the amount will be turned over to small claims court. The district will pursue the 12 highest totals over the last threshold at the end of each school year.
