The instructional material available on digital media (the “Work”) must be used by each student in compliance with the terms set out below:
Each Work must be used solely for the benefit of a student with a sensory, physical or neurological disability, in compliance with the analysis and action plan developed for that student.
The student using the Work must be duly enrolled in a Quebec school or school board and the person making the request must be the parent of that student.
The parent certifies to Copibec that a copy of the paper-format version of the Work has been purchased by the school, the school board or the parent for the student’s benefit.
The use of each Work is subject to the same terms as its paper-format version. For example:
In the case of a textbook, a digital copy of the Work must be purchased for every relevant student; no more than one student per school year may use that copy of the Work.
In the case of an exercise book or any other consumable instructional material intended to be used in its entirety by the student during the school year, one digital copy of the Work must be purchased per school year, per relevant student. The same copy of a Work cannot be reused during another school year, except in the specific case of a student taking more than one school year to complete a grade level. In that case, the student may keep the digital-format exercise book until the grade level is completed.
The Work cannot be reproduced, downloaded or saved under any circumstances. The parent must inform the school, the school board, the student and the student’s guardians that the Work may not be reproduced, downloaded or saved.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, temporary downloading in order to use assistive software is authorized hereunder.
The Work cannot be resold, shared or distributed to a third party under any circumstances.
To deliver an accessible version of a textbook or educational fiction book, each publisher may, at its discretion, decide whether or not to charge a cost corresponding to the price of the paper-format version of the textbook or educational fiction book, as posted on the publisher’s website. If applicable, the parent must pay the price set by the publisher for each copy of the Work, plus the service charge.
To purchase an accessible version of an exercise book or any other consumable instructional material, the parent must pay only the Copibec service charge.
Service charge: The parent must pay the $6 service charge per title ordered, regardless of the number of copies (e.g. 20 or 3 copies of a title = $6 service charge. But 1 copy each of 3 different titles = $18 service charge).
