The Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) was established to help combat the growing concern of children accessing obscene or harmful content on the Internet. Any K-12 school or library that accepts certain federal funds is required to use and evidence their “technology protection measure” on every computer connected to the Internet to block or filter any harmful content, before they can receive E-rate funding.
At NetSupport, we understand the importance of keeping students safe online, which is why our solutions are packed with powerful eSafety features to support CIPA compliance, as well as tools to help educators proactively identify eSafety risks before an incident occurs.
Using NetSupport School, the classroom management and instruction solution, teachers can ensure students are using technology safely and efficiently for learning. Teachers can set authorized/restricted website and applications lists, provide real-time keyboard monitoring, enable “Safe Search” to prevent inappropriate sites or content, plus more.
NetSupport DNA, the IT asset management and eSafety solution, provides teachers with a built-in school-wide eSafety toolkit to easily monitor devices using age-appropriate internet metering, keyword and phrase monitoring, a word cloud showing insight into trends, and cloud-based online safety console. Student safety is taken a step further with the ability to proactively identifying vulnerable students with the contextual intelligence-based risk index, as well as offering students helpful support resources.
