Staying Safe Online in the Jackson Public Schools with CIPA
The Jackson Public School District receives federal funds to defray the cost of telephony, internet access, and infrastructure that connects computers to the internet. In order to receive the funds, the District must:
- Have an Internet safety policy that includes technology protection measures;
- Have internet protection measures that block or filter Internet access to pictures that are: (a) obscene; (b) child pornography; or (c) harmful to minors, and;
- Educate minors about appropriate online behavior, including interacting with other individuals on social networking websites and in chat rooms, and cyberbullying awareness and response.
All JPS students must receive cyber safety education. Elementary teachers must document cyber safety education in their lesson plans.
