Teachers’ use of “consumables”

WARNING

DO NOT COPY WORKBOOKS OR OTHER CONSUMABLES


Consumables are materials intended for one-time use. Copying, scanning, or printing materials intended for one-time use is strictly prohibited.

“Materials intended for one-time use” are workbooks and exercise books in which a student records answers. These are materials created and intended for each student to have his or her own copy. Once a student completes the answers, these materials are of no use to another student.

Any copying from materials intended for one-time use exposes the person making the copy, the teacher, the school, and the school board to liability for copyright infringement.

This prohibition does not apply to reproducibles. A reproducible is not intended for one-time use, but is sold or provided with the rights holder's authorization to reproduce it for educational use.
