  • Option for More Restrictive License Terms
    • If you prefer to offer your Content on more restrictive terms, you may do so as follows:
      • For Content you submit, remove the Creative Commons logo from your Content (contact us if you require instructions).
      • For Content you submit to a Service other than your own, label your submission with a full copyright notice, i.e., your name, the word “copyright” or “@” symbol and the year of first publication.
    • By posting your Content using the District's Services, you are granting the District a non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, and worldwide license to use your Content in connection with the operation of the Services, including, without limitation, the license rights to copy, distribute, transmit, publicly display, publicly perform, reproduce, edit, translate and reformat your Content, and/or to incorporate it into a collective work.
  • Attribution
    • When publicly displaying, publicly performing, reproducing or distributing copies of your Content, or Content as incorporated into a collective work, the District will make best efforts to credit your authorship. You grant the District permission to use your name for such attribution purposes. You, likewise, agree to represent yourself accurately. You acknowledge that misrepresentation may lead us, in our sole discretion, to cancel your use of the Services and delete any of your Content.


  • Posting
    • Those of us who are coordinating these Services believe deeply in free speech. Given our role in offering this Service and our presence together as part of the extended educational community, however, we must reserve the right to remove certain content that you may post. As a general matter, you may post content freely to any Service, so long as the content is not illegal, obscene, defamatory, threatening, infringing of intellectual property rights, invasive of privacy or otherwise injurious or objectionable.
    • You may not use the District name to endorse or promote any product, opinion, cause or political candidate. Representation of your personal opinions as institutionally endorsed by the District or any of its schools or organizations is strictly prohibited.
    • By posting content to any Service, you warrant and represent that you either own or otherwise control all of the rights to that content, including, without limitation, all the rights necessary for you to provide, post, upload, input or submit the content, or that your use of the content is a protected fair use. You agree that you will not knowingly and with intent to defraud provide material and misleading false information. You represent and warrant also that the content you supply does not violate these Terms, and that you will indemnify and hold the District harmless for any and all claims resulting from content you supply.
    • You acknowledge that the District does not pre-screen or regularly review posted content, but that it shall have the right to remove in its sole discretion any content that it considers to violate these Terms or the terms of any other user agreements that may govern your use of the District’s network.
  • Accessing
    • You understand that all content is the sole responsibility of the individual who originally created the content. You understand, also, that all opinions expressed by users of these Services are expressed strictly in their individual capacities, and not as representatives of the District.
    • You agree that the District will not be liable, under any circumstances and in any way, for any errors or omissions, loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of use of any content posted. You agree that you must evaluate and bear all risks associated with the use of any content, including any reliance on the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of such content.
  • Children
    • Collecting personal information from children under the age of 13 is prohibited. No Content should be directed toward such children without the express written permission of the Superintendent of the District.
