Copying Copyright Materials
Adoption Date

The Board encourages teachers to make judicious use of appropriate printed materials, sound recordings, and electronic programs in the curriculum. It recognizes, however, that Federal law, applicable to Corporations, protects authors and composers from the unauthorized use of their copyrighted work.

In order to define the fair and reasonable use the professional staff members may make of copyrighted works for educational purposes, without the permission of the copyright owner and to reduce the risk of copyright infringement, guidelines regarding the copying and distribution of copyrighted materials for instructional purposes should be distributed at least once a year to all professional staff in accordance with the terms of the master contract.
