CIPA Facts
  • (CIPA) enacted by Congress in December 2000
  • Addresses concerns about access in schools and libraries to the Internet and other information.
  • For any school or library that receives discounts for Internet access (E-RATE) or for internal connections, CIPA imposes certain requirements.
Schools and libraries subject to CIPA do not receive E-Rate unless they certify that they have certain Internet safety measures in place.
  • These include measures to block or filter pictures that: (a) are obscene, (b) contain child pornography, or (c) when computers with Internet access are used by minors, are harmful to minors;
  • Schools are required to adopt a policy to monitor online activities of minors
Schools and libraries subject to CIPA are required to adopt a policy addressing:
  • (a) access by minors to inappropriate matter on the Internet and World Wide Web;
  • (b) the safety and security of minors when using electronic mail, chat rooms, and other forms of direct electronic communications;
  • (c) unauthorized access, including so-called "hacking," and other unlawful activities by minors online;
  • (d) unauthorized disclosure, use, and dissemination of personal information regarding minors; and
  • (e) restricting minors' access to materials harmful to them. CIPA does not require the tracking of Internet use by minors or adults.
