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: 

  1. Schools within a school district that serve only part-time students (for example, a vocational school within a school district).
  2. Independent schools that serve only part-time students (for example, a regional vocational school shared by multiple school districts).
  3. Pre-K schools where all students attend half-days.
