CIPA Compliance

In order to be in compliance with the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA), district Internet safety policies must include monitoring and filtering the online activities of students. Internet safety policies must provide for educating students about appropriate online behavior, including interacting with other individuals on social networking websites and in chat rooms and cyber bullying awareness and response. The WVDE provides a method and curriculum modules that allow districts/schools to certify compliance with this FCC regulation.
 
Berkeley County Schools will provide additional instructional materials which provide for educating students, teachers and staff about appropriate online behavior, including interacting with other individuals on social networking websites and in chat rooms and cyber bullying awareness and response.
 
Berkeley County Schools is currently using the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program in order to meet the CIPA compliance.  Information about the Olweus program can be found at http://www.violencepreventionworks.org.
