We study fluctuations of polynomial linear statistics for discrete Schrödinger operators with a random decaying potential. We describe a decomposition of the space of polynomials into a direct sum of three subspaces determining the growth rate of the variance of the corresponding linear statistic. In particular, each one of these subspaces defines a unique critical value for the decay-rate exponent, above which the random variable has a limit that is sensitive to the underlying distribution and below which the random variable has asymptotically Gaussian fluctuations.
