When a school results in a negative credit (overall net usage position), their bank account will be swept as part of this process. Prior to any negative sweeps being processed, Finance will review the school’s bank balance to ensure that no school is put in an overdraft position.
In the event that there are insufficient funds available in the school’s bank account, the recoupment will be placed on hold and Central Office will negotiate with the school a better time to process the recoupment.
