In addition, parent(s) can agree to the collection of their child’s information and refuse to have it shared with third parties. Parent(s) may reach out to their child’s teacher to exercise their rights in reference to the child’s data.

13. The Children’s Internet Protection Act

The Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) is a federal law enacted by Congress in December 2000 to address concerns about access to offensive content over the internet on school and library computers. CIPA imposes certain types of requirements on any school or library that receives funding support for internet access or internal connections from the “E-rate” program —a program that makes certain technology more affordable for eligible schools and libraries. Our programs do not provide links to external resources or chat rooms, and do not contain any offensive or inappropriate material. If you would like more information about CIPA, please go to https://www.fcc.gov/consumers/guides/childrens-internet-protection-act.
