This year an applicant discount will be calculated at the school district level, regardless of which schools within the district are receiving these services. After entering all your entities for which you are applying, to calculate your district’s E-rate discount, you must enter the student population and the number of students that qualify for the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) for each school. After you add each school’s information, click “Save and Recalculate” and the tool will calculate your district’s E-rate discount. Note that the “Save and Recalculate” button may not be visible at the bottom of the screen, unless you have edited your entity information. For information on the online form and the discount templates see the USAC News Brief about Discount Calculations.
