Children's Internet Protection Act
What is the CIPA?
The Children's Internet Protection Act
was passed by Congress in December of 2000. Its purpose is to address concerns about children’s access to obscene or harmful content over the Internet.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) mandates the regulations for the CIPA.
Specific CIPA Regulations
Internet Safety Policy
What would a school district need to do to be in compliance with CIPA laws?
If your library utilizes E-Rate (Universal Services) or LSTA (Library Services & Technology Act) in a manner that requires compliance then your library must:
Install and enforce the use of a technology protection measure (filter) on every computer in the library with Internet access. The technology protection measure must protect users from visual depictions.
Adopt and enforce an Internet Safety Policy that includes the use of a technology protection measure. For E-Rate applicants, that Internet safety Policy must meet the additional requirements as set forth in the Neighborhood Children's Internet Protection Act (NCIPA)
4 Guidelines for Regulation Compliance
1. The policy should apply to both minors and adults (however, an authorized person may disable the blocking or filtering measure during use by an adult to enable access for bona fide research or other lawful purposes).
2. The policy should specify use of an Internet filtering mechanism.
3. The policy should emphasize staff responsibilities in educating minors on appropriate online behavior and in supervising such activities.
4. The policy should address the NCIPA issues for minors (but is also appropriate for adults).
...by establishing and presenting a certifiable written policy of regulation compliance!!!
