2. Licence of the Maths Pathway Learning and Teaching Model

Our job is to provide access to
all the tools and resources required for you to use Maths Pathway successfully.
Those items are detailed in this section.

 2.1. As from the Commencement Date, Maths Pathway shall grant a license to the School to access and use the following items (the Licensed Material):

   The online student and teacher components of the Maths Pathway Learning and Teaching Model (Model)

   To be accessed online with the Model, all academic content associated with the Model, in the form of modules, explicit exposure exercises, online assessments, mini-lessons, rich tasks,
projects, lesson ideas, and other provided lesson plans.

   To be accessed electronically but saved to local devices, some academic content associated with the Model, in the form of modules and explicit exposure exercises within offline packs generated within the Model.

   To be available for print, some academic content associated with the Model, in the form of printed topic tests, exams, projects, and any student print-outs laid out in the preparation section

During this agreement, we will provide access to the Maths Pathway tools and products, as well as technical support to help you make good use of them.

Maths Pathway shall endeavour (but is not obligated) to respond to technical support requests within 24 hours of receiving a written request.

3.2. Maths Pathway may provide further professional development services while this agreement is in effect, to be documented in a separate agreement between the parties.

 

3.3. For the avoidance of doubt, Maths Pathway will not install any hardware or software and its technical support relates only to the use of the Licensed Material.

4. License Fee

In return for using Maths Pathway, you need to pay the fees specified in the License Agreement. Late fees
will apply to outstanding payments.  You can increase the number of students using Maths Pathway at any time, provided you pay the appropriate fees for those new students. You can reduce the number of students using Maths Pathway, only once, by up to 10%, based on enrolment variations; or by a larger amount if we agree to the change.

 

 

4.1. In consideration of Maths Pathway granting the License and supplying the Services while this agreement is in effect, the School agrees to pay the fees specified in the License Agreement (License Fee) on the terms specified in the License Agreement (License Fee Payment Terms). All fees are expressed exclusive of GST unless specifically stated otherwise.

4.2. If
the License Fee is outstanding at any time, where ‘outstanding’ means in contravention of the License Fee Payment Terms, then Maths Pathway may at its sole discretion charge a late payment fee for each month that the License Fee is outstanding.

    The late payment fee will be calculated by applying a 1% annual compound interest rate, compounded daily, to the sum of the outstanding amount of the License Fee and any existing late
payment fees.

    The late payment fee will be calculated monthly on the anniversary of the original License Fee payment date.

4.3.  In the event that the License Fee is outstanding for more than 90 days, Maths Pathway may suspend or terminate the License upon written notice to the School with effect from the conclusion of the current school term. If the License is suspended or terminated, late payment fees will no longer accrue; the School is still liable to pay the License Fee and any late payment fees already accrued. Upon full payment of all outstanding license fees, Maths Pathway may at its discretion resume or reinstate the Licence.

4.4.
Maths Pathway may donate to the School a number of free licenses to use the Licensed Material (Donated Licenses), provided:

                4.4.1. any Needs Based Licenses may be offered at Maths Pathway’s sole discretion, on terms specified by Maths Pathway, and

 

                4.4.2. any Needs Based License will be reviewed on the anniversary of the License Agreement, at which point the total number of Needs Based Licenses may be changed on terms specified by Maths Pathway.

4.5. At the request of the School, Maths Pathway may increase the Number of Licensed Users authorised to use the Licensed Material while this agreement is in effect, subject to the License Fee Payment Terms.

4.6. If Maths Pathway agrees to increase the Number of Licensed Users authorised to use the Licensed Material pursuant to clause 4.5., Maths Pathway may increase or otherwise vary the License Fee in respect of the additional Licensed Users.

4.7. At the request of the School, and only due to lower than anticipated enrolment figures at the School, Maths Pathway may decrease the Number of Licensed Users authorised to use the Licensed Material while this agreement is in effect, subject to the License Fee Payment Terms. The School can make this request once at the commencement of each calendar year while this agreement is in effect. This request cannot be for more than 10% of the Number of Licensed Users in the License Agreement.

 

4.8. If Maths Pathway agrees to decrease the Number of Licensed Users authorised to use the Licensed Material pursuant to clause 4.7., Maths Pathway may decrease or otherwise vary the License Fee in respect of the reduced number of Licensed Users.

5. Audits of usage

We will perform an annual audit of your usage to ensure that it matches, within reason, the number of students specified in the License Agreement. We may charge additional fees for extra students, or provide credits for reduced numbers of students.

5.1. Maths Pathway will conduct, on June 1 of each calendar year,  an audit of the number of students registered to the School’s account on the Maths Pathway platform who have completed a test in that calendar year (the Number of Active Students).

5.2. If the Number of Active Students is different to the Number of Licensed Users, then Maths Pathway may, at its sole discretion, contact the School to inform them of the outcome of the audit.

5.3. In the event that the Number of Active Students is greater than the Number of Licensed Users, Maths Pathway may, at its sole discretion, increase the Number of Licensed Users to match the Number of Active Students, and issue an invoice to the school for additional Licence Fees based on the new number.

     This invoice will be subject to fourteen day payment terms, unless otherwise agreed to by Maths Pathway.

     This invoice will be subject to the same late payment provisions as described in clause 4.2.

 

5.4. In the event that the Number of Active Students is less than the Number of Licensed Users, Maths Pathway may, at its sole discretion, issue a credit note to the school for the difference. That credit note will be applied to future invoices for Licensed Users issued to the School.
