Meeting E-rate requirements for Internet Safety and Reporting

Starting in July, all school districts receiving E-rate funding will have to meet the stipulations of the Protecting Children in the 21st Century Act. Atomic Learning has the resources necessary to meet the Internet Safety requirements for E-rate, in addition to the reporting tools you will need to track student participation. 

To help support schools in addressing those requirements, we’re compiling all these resources in a Spotlight page that will be available for the 2012-2013 school year. To help in your planning, we wanted to share the resources that will be included with our customers before the Spotlight page launches.

The FCC has not issued specific guidance as to what schools are required to teach their students. To maintain local control, schools are allowed to choose which lessons and resources are best suited to the needs of their schools. The resources included will help schools meet those requirements; each district may choose which are most applicable to the needs of their students.

Spotlight Goals

This Spotlight will provide professional development for educators and help students learn how to navigate the Internet safely, in addition to helping administrators meet E-rate requirements of the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) and the Protecting Children in the 21st Century Act.

Today’s students must know how to interact with others online in social networking sites, in chatrooms, and when instant messaging and texting. Knowing how to protect themselves online from cyberbullies, online predators, and scams is important to ensure their safety and well-being while learning and interacting online.

What will be included in the Spotlight? Read on! If you would like to speak to a representative to learn more about how Atomic Learning can help your district, please contact us at:

Majority of survey respondents credit E-rate funding as critical to their success
