Teaching in a Low-Income Area
In order for a Kansas school to qualify for the loan cancellation program, the building's (not district's) total enrollment which is eligible for free/reduced price meals must be greater than 30%. If a school building is not listed on this printout (Excel), the percentage of low-income students is less than 30% and, therefore, would not be eligible for this program.
Once a building is identified as a Low Income School, go to this federal website to perform another search using the building name. This will verify that the school was accepted at the federal level and you may seek loan cancellation or deferment. A check list is provided to get started on what steps to take to begin the process.
