Digital Citizenship Survey

The district would like all 4th to 6th grade students to fill our this survey.

Children's Internet Protection Act

The Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) was enacted by Congress in 2000 to address concerns about children's access to obscene or harmful content over the Internet. CIPA imposes certain requirements on schools or libraries that receive discounts for Internet access or internal connections through the E-rate program – a program that makes certain communications services and products more affordable for eligible schools and libraries. In early 2001, the FCC issued rules implementing CIPA and provided updates to those rules in 2011.


What CIPA requires

Schools and libraries subject to CIPA, including the libraries in the Davis Joint Unified School District, only receive the discounts offered by the E-rate program if they certify that they have an Internet safety policy that includes technology protection measures. The protection measures must block or filter Internet access to pictures that are: (a) obscene; (b) child pornography; or (c) harmful to minors (for computers that are accessed by minors). 

Schools subject to CIPA have two additional certification requirements: 1) their Internet safety policies must include monitoring the online activities of minors; and 2) as required by the Protecting Children in the 21st Century Act, they must provide for educating minors about appropriate online behavior, including interacting with other individuals on social networking websites and in chat rooms, and cyberbullying awareness and response.

Internet Safety Requirements for All DJUSD Teachers and Students

This web site provides lessons and resources that comply with CIPA. It supports teachers in providing appropriate instruction in digital citizenship.  These lessons are available from use throughout DJUSD.

All school sites develop an annual Internet Safety Implementation Plan, that identifies a project lead (principal or assistant principal or site specialist), teachers who will provide grade level instruction, and a timeline for completion of instruction.

Each school year,  the principal must sign off that the site implementation plan is complete, and submit it to the Technology Department by the end of September.
