Cyber Safety Roundtable Discussion

On March 20, 2018, First Lady Melania Trump hosted representatives from leading online social platforms and other interested stakeholders to talk about how to have children safe online experiences and to be responsible digital citizens. Representative from Facebook, Google, Amazon, Twitter and SnapChat were in attendance. The First Lady also touched on cyber bullying issues during the hour-long summit with key leaders.
Every school district that receives E-rate funds for Internet access is required to be compliant with the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA). Among the CIPA requirements is that school districts must have an Internet Safety Policy and educate their students about cyber-bullying awareness. In fact, school officials certify they are compliant with this requirement by submitting their Form 486. The Form 486 must be submitted to the SLD 120 days from the time a funding commitment is received or when services start, whichever is later.
