Depending whether your school is located in an urban or rural area and the economic need of your students, a school can attain an E-Rate discount in a range from 20% to 90%. The level of economic need is determined by the percentage of students eligible for the National School Lunch Program. Both of these sets of information are then used to determine the school’s discount by using the E-Rate Discount Matrix.

To calculate a school’s E-Rate discount, each school first must determine the percentage of its students by school that are eligible for the NSLP, which is basically 185% of the federal poverty guidelines.  Whether a student participates in NSLP or if the school serves lunches is irrelevant.  The basic issue at hand is whether or not a student’s family falls within the income eligibility guidelines of NSLP.

To locate your discount information, please go to TEA's website for support:
