The countdown is based on server time, which is currently:
A1. Like all schools, NIFs receive the district-wide discount, regardless of the entities that they serve.
A2. The urban/rural status of a NIF is based on the urban/rural status of the school district or library system's status as a whole. In order for a district to be considered rural, more than half of the schools or libraries in the district must be rural. NIFs are not included in that determination.
A3. No. NIFs with classrooms, like all other entities in the school district or library system, get the same district-wide discount.
A4. Rural discount rates are available only in those cases where more than half of the schools in the district or libraries in the library system are deemed rural.
A5. No. The urban/rural status of the district is determined only based on the schools or libraries in the district. More than 50 percent of the schools or libraries have to be rural in order for the district to be considered rural.
