Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) and e-Rate

All persons within the school system should be familiar with the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) which establishes guidelines overseeing Internet use in the schools.  In particular, it addresses protecting students from accessing potentially inappropriate material online and from disclosure of personal information about students on the web. Failure to comply with these guidelines could result in the county losing the eRate funding that provides affordable Internet services for all schools - http://www.fcc.gov/guides/childrens-internet-protection-act....
