The Consortium welcomes the use of the TC² model and our published and unpublished materials by Partners and non-partners for commercial and not-for-profit purposes under the following conditions. Any breach of these conditions may result in immediate revoking of all privileges and rights associated with use of the TC² model and resources.
Contact our office for permissions and reproduction information.
Generally speaking, use of TC² materials found on our website, distributed in our workshops or reproduced in our publications is restricted to in-class use by the individual purchaser, licensee or participant. Go to Terms and conditions for a detailed statement of the rights and restrictions for use of these materials by individuals. Anyone sharing TC² materials must also comply with the conditions described below.
The payment of an annual Partner fee entitles the employees of Partner groups to use and share particular materials and services available through the Consortium within their own school, district or association. We have a generous policy regarding the free use of limited portions of our resources by Partners. In some cases, Partners may simply share our resources without seeking explicit TC² approval; in cases where the intention is to adapt or publish TC² material, explicit approval is required.

Permission fees, if any, will be set on the basis of the anticipated number of copies or online users, and whether the materials will be freely distributed (non-commercial use) or offered for resale (commercial use).
Non-partner groups wishing to use our materials should submit the proposed materials to TC² for review prior to dissemination or use, and indicate the context, quantity and, if applicable, selling price of the package containing the TC² materials.
