Keeping Kids Safe Online

Meeting E-rate Requirements for Internet Safety and Reporting

Spotlight Goals

This Spotlight will provide professional development for educators, in addition to helping administrators meet E-rate requirements of the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) and the Protecting Children in the 21st Century Act.

Today’s students must know how to interact with others online in social networking sites, in chatrooms, and when instant messaging and texting. Knowing how to protect themselves online from cyberbullies, online predators, and scams is important to ensure their safety and well-being while learning and interacting online.
