Assistance requested when making payments to DOE

The Department of Education often receives payments by check from schools and school districts for workshops and other services. The checks often come in without a clear indication of their purpose.

The Department would greatly appreciate it if, when writing these checks, schools would include a note on the advice portion of the check specifically indicating the payment’s purpose.

If it is for a workshop, for example, indicate which workshop it is. Otherwise, it is difficult and time-consuming for Department staff to determine where the money should be directed.

This notation will assist the Department in processing payments without delay.
