Appendix C - CIPA Policy
The Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) was signed into law on December 21, 2000. Under CIPA, no school or library may receive discounts unless it certifies that it is enforcing a policy of internet safety that includes the use of filtering or blocking technology (see below). This Internet Safety Policy must protect against access, through computers with internet access, to visual depictions that are obscene, child pornography or (in the case of use by minors) harmful to minors. The school or library must also certify that it is enforcing the operation of such filtering or blocking technology during any use of such computers by minors.
