Video Policy

Written by

8400 - Audio and Visual Media Usage

  1. PURPOSE & PHILOSOPHY
    The Board of Education of Weber School District recognizes that movies, videos, and audiovisual materials can enhance the educational experience. The board’s intent is that audio and visual media materials are used legally and appropriately in achieving legitimate educational objectives and are appropriate for age and/or grade/subject level.

  2. POLICY
    All use of audiovisual support materials in an instructional setting must comply with applicable laws. These materials should be selected and authorized as outlined in this policy and their use should align with an educational purpose, comply with applicable parental notification and permission requirements; and not be used solely for reward or entertainment. All visual media must be used under the supervision of the instructor and in compliance with applicable copyright laws and licensing agreements.

  3. DEFINITIONS
    1. “Audio and visual media” means electronic media that have either sound or visual components or both. This includes music, audiobooks, videos, and any other type of live or recorded media presented for hearing or viewing purposes.
    2. “Rating” means the rating given a movie by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA); ie., G, PG, PG-13, R MPAA Ratings Page

  4. RATING GUIDELINES AND USE OF VISUAL MEDIA
    1. Instructional Use
      1. In elementary schools, short segments of G and PG-rated media may be used provided they do not contain vulgarity, indecency, nudity, excessive violence, and/or profanity. Movies or short segments of movies rated PG-13, R, or NC-17 will not be shown in elementary schools or at school-sponsored activities.
      2. In junior high schools, short segments of G and PG-rated media may be used provided they do not contain vulgarity, indecency, nudity, excessive violence, and/or profanity. In 9th-grade short segments of PG-13-rated media may also be used provided they do not contain vulgarity, indecency, nudity, excessive violence, and/or profanity. Movies or short segments of movies rated, R, or NC-17 will not be shown in junior high schools or at school-sponsored activities.
      3. In high schools, short segments or G, PG, and PG-13-rated media may be used provided they do not contain vulgarity, indecency, nudity, excessive violence, and/or profanity. School administration must approve the use of visual media longer than short segments and a public performance license must be obtained. Movies or short segments rate R or NC-17 will not be shown in secondary schools or at school-sponsored activities.
      4. Visual media must be used under the direct supervision of the instructor.
      5. Use of media during instructional time is limited to instructional purposes and not for entertainment or as a reward. It may be used to initiate, enhance, or culminate teaching units. Students should be guided by the teacher in connecting media to academic content through pre- and post-activities related to the curriculum.
      6. The instructional value of a particular piece of media shall be weighed against the value of the academic time it consumes. Only those segments of media which illustrate the topic or curriculum content should be presented, rather than a lengthy program in its entirety.
    2. Use for Entertainment or Rewards
      1. Teachers may use visual media (either a clip or a full film) for entertainment or reward purposes only on rare occasions and only with approval from the school administration. A public performance license must be obtained.
      2. Rating guidelines for instructional use outlined above in section V. A. must be followed with the exception of PG -13 rated material at the junior high level.
      3. Teachers showing 9th graders full movies rated PG-13, for entertainment or reward purposes, must obtain prior written consent from parents. This can be in the class disclosure or a standalone consent form.

  5. DISTRICT INSTRUCTIONAL MEDIA AUDIO AND VIDEO SOURCES
    1. Any digital media from the district video portal may be shown to students. (Grade-level recommendations in the catalog should be observed and rating guidelines outlined in section V. should be followed).
    2. Privately owned videos and personal streaming services may not be shown unless approved by the building administrator.

  6. COPYRIGHT GUIDELINES
    1. All employees are responsible for the legal, ethical, and appropriate use of copyrighted materials and will adhere to the Copyright Law of the United States of America (Title 17 of the U.S. Code) and Policy 8100 Copyright.

Revised: Oct 2023

Copyright

Written by

Weber County School District and its employees will adhere to the National Copyright Law (Title 17, United States Code). Copies not specifically allowed by the law, by fair use criteria, by license agreement, or by the permission of the copyright holder are prohibited.

Responsibility for keeping district personnel advised as to copyright and the right to make copies of media materials is placed with the Office of Instructional Services

Liability for willful infringement is placed upon the person or persons not adhering to such laws.

—Board Policy, June 16, 1992 
 

Copyright Guidelines

Printed Materials 
Teachers may make a single copy for research purposes of:  
  A. A chapter from a book  
  B. An article from a periodical or newspaper  
  C. A short story, essay or poem  
  D. A chart, graph, diagram, drawing, or cartoon from a book, periodical, or newspaper.  
    (Copyrighted, syndicated cartoons may not be copied)  
Teachers may make multiple copies for classroom use if:  
  A. The materials meet the test of brevity:  
    1. Poetry—less than 250 words  
    2.  Prose—a complete article, story, or essay of less than 2,500 words, or an excerpt of not more than 1,000 words or 10% of the work, whichever is less.  
  B. The materials meet the test of cummulative effect:  
    1. The copies are for one course in the school.  
    2. Not more than one poem, article or essay, or two excerpts from the same author.  
    3. Not more than three pieces from the collective work or periodical volume during one class term.  
    4. No more than nine instances of such multiple copying for one course during one class term.  
Exceptions: Unlimited copying of newspaper articles and current news selections of other periodicals.  
Restrictions: Copying may not be used to create or replace an anthology, compilation or collective work.  
There shall be no copying of consumable works without written permission of the publisher.  
No copying may substitute for the purchase of books. 

Audio/Video Tapes

Instructional Television (ITV) programs (Channels 7 or 9) typically may be recorded for school use—see the "Instructional Television" schedule for restrictions in your media center.  
Videotapes bearing "For Home Use Only" labels may be used in schools if they meet the following conditions:  
  A. They are shown in a room regularly used for instructional purposes (not auditoriums, for example).  
  B. the material is an integral part of the curriculum.  
  C. They are not shown for purely recreational viewing.  
    (Recreational viewing constitutes a public performance and the appropriate royalities must be paid.) 

Videotapes appearing in the district catalog have had the appropriate fees paid for use in the schools. They may be duplicated at the school site for school use, if they do not bear a "Do Not Duplicate" or "For Home Use Only" insignia. 

Off-air recording must be initiated by the teacher, not the library media personnel. The program may be used for 10 school days for direct student instructional instruction and must be erased after 45 calendar days. 

Copyrighted materials may not be transferred from one medium to another. For example, you may not copy a 33 1/3 recording to tape, a Compact Disc to tape, or a radio broadcast to tape for use in the classroom.

Computer Software  

School equipment may not be used to copy computer software illegally. The use of illegally copied software in schools is prohibited.

Software licensing agreements of copyright holders must be observed.

Multiple loading of software is prohibited without written permission from the copyright holder.

Use of computer software on a network computer system is prohibited without written permission of the copyright holder.

Software purchased by the district may not be used outside the schools unless provided for by license.

Music

Copies of sheet music may be duplicated for use by a chorus providing a purchase order for individual copies of the music has been issued. Once the music has arrived, the duplicate a must be destroyed.
