Access by minors to inappropriate matter on the Internet;
The safety and security of minors when using electronic mail, chat rooms and other forms of direct electronic communications;
Unauthorized access, including so-called “hacking,” and other unlawful activities by minors online;

CIPA Compliance: Under the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA), Kaufman ISD implements Internet safety measures through a filtering program called LightSpeed. The program blocks inappropriate material and generates daily reports of inappropriate and suspicious searches. Each school incorporates Internet Safety into their curriculum through the classroom and/or computer time.
COPPA imposes certain requirements on operators of websites or online services directed to children under 13 years of age, and on operators of other websites or online services that have actual knowledge that they are collecting personal information online from a child under 13 years of age.
