Extended Permission through December 31, 2020 for Remote Educator Presentation of Second Step® Student Lessons
Committee for Children (“CFC”) understands that many educators are looking for ways to share social-emotional supports with their students during this challenging time. Due to the spread of COVID-19, we know there is a growing need for many schools to provide instruction and classroom materials online.
If you have access to your Second Step® curricula and teaching materials, CFC is expanding permission to use these materials for secure, remote presentation of student lessons on the Terms & Conditions below, through December 31, 2020. This extended permission allows you to:
- Pre-record your student lessons;
- Live-stream and simultaneously record your student lessons;
- Upload a recording of each student lesson to a password-protected environment; and
- Use password-protected recordings for any student lesson in your school that is permitted under your Second Step® license with CFC.
Except for permitting remote student lessons, the scope of your Second Step® license is unchanged. This means you do not have permission to make copies of, remotely share, or modify the Second Step® curricula or related teaching materials or use these materials for schools, classrooms or students not already covered.
The full Terms & Conditions applicable to this extended permission are below.
Terms & Conditions of Extended Permission through December 31, 2020
If you are now offering classes remotely, CFC is extending the Permitted Use of the Materials to allow you to pre-record or live-stream and simultaneously record your student lessons. Both pre-recorded and recorded live-stream lessons (collectively, the “Recordings”) may be posted on a password-protected environment, such as a non-public server or learning management system (LMS) (the “Extended Permission”) through December 31, 2020 (the “Extension Term”). A single Recording may be used by more than one educator at your school for any student lesson that is permitted under the Original Agreement.
Permitted Use of the Materials does not include making copies of, remotely sharing, or modifying the Materials or use of the Materials or Recordings for schools, classrooms or students not already covered under the Original Agreement. The Original Agreement still governs the scope of your use of the Materials during the Extension Term and beyond (i.e., the same licensed number of students, classrooms, grade levels, etc.). The Extended Permission is conditioned upon your compliance with the Original Agreement in all respects.
The Extended Permission will expire at the end of the Extension Term (i.e., December 31, 2020). Following the Extension Term, the Original Agreement will fully govern your permitted scope of use of the Materials moving forward. CFC will own all rights in the Recordings, and the Recordings should be taken down and no longer used after the Extension Term expires. CFC reserves all rights in and to the Materials and the Recordings not expressly granted in the Original Agreement or this Extended Permission.
