Qualifying student moves overseas

Rate Topic 0

If a K-12 student with a qualifying print disability has a Bookshare individual membership and is on a school's organizational roster and moves overseas, how does this impact his/her ability to access Bookshare? If the student is served by an international school, is that school eligible for an organizational membership? What schools qualify for Bookshare organizational memberships if they serve US citizens? Do US students' individual memberships follow them if they move with their families to another country? How does this work?

Hi Karen,

The easy fast answer is Bookshare will absolutely still serve the student, however depending on several circumstances the member may need to purchase a membership with Bookshare to continue use.  

If the student moves to a non-US based school and no longer has a permanent US mailing address they usually are considered an international student which would require purchase of a Bookshare subscription, or for the school to purchase book blocks.  If the school they move to is still a US based school just, or the student still has a permanent US mailing address they can still be considered a US student and receive the free account.

The most common scenario we have is with students related to US military personnel.  These students are absolutely still US students.
