Teacher Discount

I have been with AT&T for probably almost 20 years and I have been an educator for longer. I was just talking to other teachers at my school that mentioned that they get a discount with Verizon. I just contacted AT&T and they also give educators discounts. I wish I had know that for the last 20 years. 😞

To check whether you're eligible for the AT&T Signature Program, you can indicate your employee ID in an AT&T store.

Also: how can our school participate in the E-Rate Program? I found the AT&T page at MyEducationDiscount and they clearly state that a school can have up to 90% discount on the existing network (or a new one). Is that true?

Follow the prompts to check your eligibility, click here to access AT&T's

Up to 90%. Copy and paste link. I'm on mobile and it does not allow the creation of active links

Usually the school, county or union sends that info out.  As a tech director for schools I sent it out yearly (and had it on our internal help pages).

 

Most schools/state agencies seem to get 17%, does that sound right?

It's only on the PLAN, not the lines.

You can check using your work email here.

 The account must be in your name and only one discount is allowed on the data portion of the plan.

Thanks- I have been told to stop into one of the stores with my ID to get the discount started.

@dovpat Try the e-mail option (listed about) first, if it accepts your e-mail it's a little easyer (and more likely to work, IMHO).

I tried it and it didn't recognize my school email.

My 2 cents. Talk to another teacher getting the discount and get the FAN number off of their bill (and the proper name of the district in AT&T's computers), it might make having them look it up go A LOT smoother...

 

Please let me know how it turns out so I know whether to suggest this again to somebody...

Thanks for the idea but I stopped into a store today and they signed me up for the discount.
