Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA)

The St. James R-I School District will enforce a policy of Internet safety that includes the use of filtering or blocking technology. This Internet Safety Policy must protect against access, through devices with Internet access, to visual depictions that are obscene, child pornography, or (in the case of use by minors) harmful to minors. In general, local communities are responsible for determining what constitutes prohibited material and appropriate actions by schools and libraries.
