New EPC Rules for Part-Time Students
The Schools and Libraries Division (SLD) has been issuing special guidance on a varying degree of topics based on the number of inquiries they are receiving tied to a topic. On March 23, 2016, the SLD released guidance on how to enter the student counts in E-rate Productivity Center (EPC) when a school only has part-time students and no full-time students.
There are three specific scenarios highlighted:
- Schools within a school district that serve only part-time students (for example, a vocational school within a school district).
- Independent schools that serve only part-time students (for example, a regional vocational school shared by multiple school districts).
- Pre-K schools where all students attend half-days.
