CIPA Compliance (Children's Internet Protection Act)
In order to be in compliance with the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA), district Internet safety policies must include monitoring and filtering the online activities of students. Internet safety policies must provide for educating students about appropriate online behavior, including interacting with other individuals on social networking websites and in chat rooms and cyber bullying awareness and response. The WVDE provides a method and curriculum modules that allow districts/schools to certify compliance with this FCC regulation. Mercer County has adopted this process.
