The Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) Trademark Licensing Program is an innovative program that offers organizations and businesses an opportunity to use M-DCPS names, trademarks, and logos for school-related activities and commercial purposes. M-DCPS established a comprehensive, multi-tiered process that protects the Board while supporting organizations that are affiliated with District schools and commercial entities that wish to incorporate into merchandise the Board’s names, trademarks, and logos.
All use of M-DCPS logos must be done by licensed approved vendors. Please have any potential vendor that you plan on using to register as an approved licensee. They may have the option of registering for one of the various licenses, which also includes the one-time use of the logo for your project. It would be in the best interest to have your vendor consider <ahref=” shop=”” “=””>purchasing a license for multiple uses. A license can be purchased as an internal customer or an internal customer or dual. </ahref=”>
