Charles bought the books from a friend, so what was paid for them isn't a qualified education expense. Donna bought the books at College W's bookstore. Although Donna paid College W directly for the first-year books and materials, the payment isn't a qualified expense because the books and materials aren't required to be purchased from College W for enrollment or attendance at the institution.
You have a bachelor's degree and you work as a temporary instructor at a university. At the same time, you take graduate courses toward an advanced degree. The rules of the university state that you can become a faculty member only if you get a graduate degree.

You haven't met the minimum educational requirements to qualify you as a faculty member. The graduate courses aren't qualifying work-related education.
Wi-Fi signals are not entirely contained within the buildings. This means that an NYU Wi-Fi signal may overflow into nearby streets and spaces that aren't NYU Wi-Fi locations.

Sexting has become a real problem, and there have been many instances in which private photos and messages have been shared more publicly than the senders had originally intended. Look into the laws on sexting, and ensure the whole school staff know what to do if they discover evidence of it in your school. Then, talk openly and honestly with students and parents about it. Give the students the information on the law, and ask their parents to discuss with them. Teens are much less likely to engage in risky behavior if their parents are open with them.
