Application asks if I'm a school employee

    I was laid off from my full time job and started to file a claim online in the state of Florida. One question is "Are you a school employee." I guess I am since I teach one class for fun and make $75 a week when teaching it, which isn't often. So I went ahead and created another employer record for this part time work. In it, it asks "If your wages are less than $4675, enter your total gross wages for the total period of your employment entered above". I've been doing this for a couple of years and my wages are less but my question is, what is the purpose of this question?

    It is used to ascertain your eligibility I suppose.

    School employees are generally not eligible during scheduled off hours.
