The copyright of work produced by teachers written during the course of their employment, even if actually done at home and out of school-time, belongs to the school, unless there is a prior agreement to the contrary. If a teacher wants to use the material elsewhere, in a book for example, the school could either ask that its copyright be acknowledged, one would hope without charge, or waive its copyright altogether.
