NEW CIPA REQUIREMENTS

New CIPA Requirements have come down from the FCC which effect a districts eligibility to receive E-Rate Funds.  The following is from Lee Bray at MDE:

In order to be eligible to receive E-Rate discounts, new CIPA legislation mandates that all School Districts comply with the following:

1.    By July 1, 2012, CIPA requires the adoption and enforcement of an new or updated “Internet Safety Policy” addressing the following new requirements:

2.     By July 1, 2012, prior to adoption of any new “Internet Safety Policies” a public hearing must be held.

3.     During the 2012-2013 school year, all Districts must educate minors about appropriate online behavior, including:  Interacting with other individuals on social networking websites, interacting with others in chat rooms, and cyberbullying awareness and response.

"The Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) was signed into law on December 21, 2000. Under CIPA, no school or library may receive discounts unless it certifies that it is enforcing a policy of Internet safety that includes the use of filtering or blocking technology (see below). This Internet Safety Policy must protect against access, through computers with Internet access, to visual depictions that are obscene, child pornography, or (in the case of use by minors) harmful to minors. The school or library must also certify that it is enforcing the operation of such filtering or blocking technology during any use of such computers by minors. The law is effective for Funding Year 4 (07/01/2001 to 06/30/2002) and for all future years. Schools and libraries receiving only Telecommunications Services are excluded from the requirements of CIPA.
