Curious which Online Safety content satisfies E-Rate Standards?


E-Rate and CIPA Compliance

E-Rate is a major funding source for school Internet access in the state of Ohio. The Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) requires that recipients of E-Rate funds are required to comply with certain Internet filtering and policy requirements.

Starting in July 2012, CIPA began requiring that districts and schools have an Internet safety program in place for K-12 students. This includes providing students with education on safe and appropriate online behavior, including interacting with others on social networking sites and chat rooms, as well as cyberbullying awareness and response.
