What Does CIPA Compliancy Mean?
All you need to know about CIPA compliancy: The Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) was enacted by Congress in 2000 to address concerns about children's access to obscene or harmful content over the internet. CIPA compliance is compulsory for both K-12 schools and libraries who wish to receive E-rate funding.
Schools and libraries subject to CIPA may not receive the discounts offered by the E-rate funding program if they cannot produce an internet safety policy that includes technology protection measures.
This internet safety policy must also address:
- Blocking or filtering inappropriate images to K-12 students on the internet that are obscene, child pornography or harmful to minors.
- Ensuring the safety and security of minors using e-mail, chat rooms or other forms of direct electronic communications.
- Restricting access to materials that could be harmful to minors.
- Prevention of 'hacking' or engagement in other unlawful activities.
- Unauthorized disclosure of personal information about themselves or their peers.
