I represent a public school district where an original play was written and performed by two teachers and several students.  This was part of the class' curriculum and was sanctioned by the district.  The creation of the play was a collaborative effort by the students and teachers.
The play was performed in the public school where admission was charged to the audience.  The profits went to the school district.  A former student who was not involved in the creation of the play saw the play and wants to publish it.
Q 1:  Who owns the rights to the play?  The school district?  The teachers?  The students and teachers?  (The teachers are employees of the school district.)
Q 2:  How would ownership rights be transferred to the former student who now wants to publish the play?  Who would have to sign off on the assignment?
