Guidelines for Off-Air Recording (Recording Broadcast Programming)*

There are a number of restrictions placed on the use of video materials made from broadcast television programs. The three most critical limitations are:

  • Recorded programs are to be used only for face-to-face instruction related to curriculum.
  • Recordings may be kept for no more than 45 calendar days after the recording date, at which time the DVDs must be discarded.
  • Recordings may be shown to students only within the first 10 school days of the 45 day retention period.

*The above guidelines are for commercial television broadcasts and some public television broadcasts, unless the Monroe 2-Orleans BOCES has negotiated other rights or licensing agreements, or other agreements are explicitly stated by the rights holders.
