Roane County Schools
Bylaws & Policies


The Board of Education directs its staff to use copyrighted works only to the extent that the law permits. The Board recognizes that Federal law applies to public school counties and the staff must, therefore, avoid acts of copyright infringement under penalty of law.

In order to help the staff abide by the laws set forth in Title 17 of the United States Code, the Board directs the Superintendent to provide administrative guidelines regarding the copying and distribution of copyrighted materials for instructional purposes.
