Guidelines for Online Usage
Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA)
This act requires any school district or public library receiving funds from E-Rate protect children from obscene content, pornography and other explicit online content through the use of protective technology, e.g. Internet content filters. More information can be found on the FCC website.
To address CIPA compliance, Rockwood uses the content filter iBoss for all users on the Rockwood network. We enforce content filtering on district-provided Chromebooks on- and off-premise. We did have a period of time when the content filtering was not working consistently off-premise and students were able to access sites they should not, for example, Netflix. This has been addressed and is tested off-site daily to ensure it is continuing to work as expected.
