About the Schools and Libraries Program
Every school in the United States is located in either a rural or an urban area, based on the Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) data. When you are calculating an individual school’s discount level, you must determine if the school is rural or urban in order to properly calculate its percentage discount.
NOTE: Calculations for percentage discounts are always based on data - including rural or urban status - at the level of an individual school or school building.
