Using Legacy Photoshop CS6 School License at Home During School Shutdown (Corona Virus)

[Title edited for clarity.]

 

Years ago, my school district (Castro Valley Unified SD in the SF Bay Area in CA) bought a license to the Creative Suite for use throughout the district.

 

Today, 6 counties in the SF Bay Area were told to shut down, and all people are to "stay in place" (stay home).

 

My students cannot access the CS6 on our school desktop computers, but they are working on Photoshop assignments.

 

Is there a way that we could get temporary permission to access an online version of CS6, or even just Photoshop?

 

I was told that we paid something like $15K years ago for the license (purchase, not a subscription), so I am hoping that we wouldn't have to pay again, especially for just a month or two.

 

How can I get this arranged for my students?

 

Thank you!

I don't think so.  If you're still teaching with CS6, your curriculum is sorely in need of updating.  CS6 is 8 year old, outdated software that's no longer sold or supported.  I am fairly certain the special home-access offer is limited to schools with CURRENT  Creative Cloud Plans only.
