Children's Internet Protection Act

The Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) was enacted April 20, 2001.  In order to be in compliance, school districts must certify that they have an active web filter in use that blocks questionable material for both children and adults.   Unrestricted web browsing gives a child complete unfiltered access to the internet.  This also opens doors to viruses and malware that can disrupt network communications, and even steal confidential information.  As the internet evolves, protecting students and employees is getting harder every year. The Oak Hill R-1 School District takes reasonable measures to protect it's students and employees from objectionable content while browsing the internet.
