Step 4: How to Document CIPA Requirements with Learning.com

We recommend a combination of two reports that can be run by the District Coordinator from the Coordinator dashboard.

  • E-rate Report shows overall coverage of the two required CIPA topics by school and standard
  • All Tracked Scores by School report shows more detail (class and student level). This can be found from the Coordinator dashboard > Track Curriculum Usage > All Tracked Scores by School

You will need to review the materials and recommended verification plan outlined in this toolkit to ensure it meets your district’s standard for E-rate certification. Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) administers the E-rate program.
