School Wide Site License. Site licenses are specially structured to offer schools and districts an easy way to provide visual thinking and learning support in every classroom for an entire school. Now K-12 institutions can make the most of their software budgets and provide all students and teachers within a school with access to Inspiration or Kidspiration.
Site licenses apply to one school located at a single address. Districts must purchase a site license for each school location separately. Single site licenses cannot be divided and distributed among multiple schools.
Site License Prices are determined based on the schools student enrollment numbers.
