When creating a purchase order, please note that our shipping address is also our billing address.
- An email address for the charter/school, so we can confirm receipt and send the USPS Priority Mail tracking number for the shipment
- In the case of a Cloud video streaming purchase we MUST have an email address for the streaming account. It needs to be an email account the student/student’s family can access, so they can sign into their video streaming account.
- The name of the student or of one of their parents, so we can connect them to the order should they email or call
- An email address for a parent of the student, so we can ask them if they would like to receive announcements about the free contests and other events we run for the students throughout the year. We do not subscribe families for newsletters unless they request to be subscribed.
- In the case of The One Year Adventure Novel we MUST have an email address to send the family of the student the unique curriculum license number to be able to access support.
Choice of Licensing
When we receive a purchase order from a new charter school, we contact the charter school about choosing a license type.
Does your charter order material for students to use in their own homes? Unless your charter or school allows families to permanently keep all the materials in the order, we will assign a one-year Group License to the charter, so that, in the event that a new family wishes to use the non-consumable materials once they are returned to the charter, you can renew the license for $50 (for The One Year Adventure Novel; we waive renewal fees for charter students using Cover Story and Byline) and order new consumable books.
If you do allow families to permanently keep all materials, we will assign a Household License to the family (non-expiring).
Schools & Co-ops
We assign a one-year Group License to orders for a group of students taking the curriculum together. A Group License is renewable for a fee ($50 for groups of 5 or fewer students; $100 for groups of 6 or more).
