Permissions Policy: Linking and Copying Content

Thank you for your interest in sharing our resources within your classroom or community! You're welcome to link to any content you've found on our site.  Please note that you may include a summary (written in your own words) of the content, but cannot publish any portion of the original resource on any online platform. Also please note that if you link to any of our worksheets or workbooks, you must link to the worksheet or workbook's overview page on our site (e.g. http://www.education.com/worksheet/article/rescue-the-prince/), NOT directly to a .PDF file. 

Our members are allowed to make copies of any item for a single classroom or your individual family. We only ask that you maintain all attributions on the worksheets and workbooks (our Education.com logo) and do not alter the content in any way. Note: You are not permitted to make copies for an entire grade level, school, or organization. None of our content, or component of our content, is permitted to be published online. 

What does this mean in practice?
