Learning A-Z Complete Usage Guidelines

A license grants access to the purchased Learning A-Z website as well as permission to use its copyrighted resources as part of the classroom curriculum. Each teacher using the resources must have a license in order to obtain the necessary permission. Each Learning A-Z license is valid for one classroom only (with up to 36 students). Licenses must be maintained for continued permission to use downloaded, copyrighted materials. Each license must be registered in the name of the classroom teacher using the resources.

Unauthorized sharing of usernames and passwords, or downloaded resources, will result in the immediate cancellation of the entire license without refund, and will be subject to retroactive charges.

Purchasing a License

Principal/School Admin/Department Director

A principal, school admin, or department director can purchase a license for classroom teachers.

If purchasing a Single Classroom License, the license must be registered in the name of, and with the contact information for, the specific classroom teacher.

If purchasing a Multiple Classroom License, the main contact can be the purchaser, but each classroom slot must be registered in the name of, and with the contact information for, the specific classroom teacher.

Classroom Teacher

A classroom teacher, servicing 36 students or less, can purchase one license. Classroom teachers with more than 36 students must purchase a classroom slot for each set of 36 students.

Classroom Helper

Each classroom must purchase a license for permission to use copyrighted resources as part of the classroom curriculum. Once a classroom is licensed, classroom helpers, such as aides or parents, serving students in the licensed classroom may use the classroom license to downloaded resources.

For team teaching situations, please notify Customer Service so that we can note your account to avoid confusion.

Reading Coach/Specialist

Each Coach/Specialist must purchase a separate license for each set of 36 students. Resources are for use by the Coach/Specialist only. If resources are sent back to the classrooms for the regular educators to continue instruction, each traditional classroom must purchase a separate license.

If resources are sent back to the classrooms for the regular educators to continue instruction, each traditional classroom must purchase a separate license.

Translating

Learning A-Z translates many of its resources into Spanish & French for the convenience of our customers. Licensed classroom teachers who wish to translate downloaded resources into an alternative language should contact Customer Service to request the alternative language.

Permission may also be available to licensed classrooms to paste translated versions over printed copies. Contact Customer Service to determine eligibility and obtain the necessary paperwork. However, contracts with third party suppliers prevent Learning A-Z from granting permission to alter original files and content.

Editing Resources

Learning A-Z is proud to partner with many third party suppliers to offer quality resources. Contracts with these suppliers prevent Learning A-Z from granting permission to alter original files and content.

Conversion to Braille

Learning A-Z is sensitive to the alternative needs of visually impaired students. Contact Customer Service to discuss obtaining permission for licensed classrooms to translate downloaded resources to Braille using a third party conversion program the licensed teacher is responsible for obtaining.

Posting Resources on a non-Learning A-Z Site

Learning A-Z is proud to partner with many third party suppliers to offer quality resources. Contracts with these suppliers prevent Learning A-Z from granting permission to post any Learning A-Z content on a non-Learning A-Z website.

Additionally, posting Learning A-Z resources, and or user information, where non-licensed classrooms have access is a violation of Learning A-Z Terms of Service and Copyright protection. Learning A-Z reserves the right to request immediate removal of unauthorized posting, and/or limit access to a license, to ensure compliance with our usage policy, copyright protection, and proper licensing.

Redistribution

Redistribution of Learning A-Z resources is a violation of Learning A-Z Terms of Service and Copyright protection except where a special contract has been granted. Parties interested in partnering with Learning A-Z as a distributer in a country outside of North America, please contact Customer Service with a complete business plan of your proposal.

Learning A-Z reserves the right to request immediate cease of unauthorized distribution, and/or limit access to a license, to ensure compliance with our usage policy, copyright protection, and proper licensing.
