Anytime, anywhere, learning provides opportunities to create digital learning environments for new teaching styles and personalized learning. As part of making sure the program is effective, the safety and security of students and assets are essential--and mandated by law. The Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) addresses Internet content and requires that schools that receive funds from the federal E-rate program must install protection. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) protects the privacy of student education records. All things are stored digitally today--from a district's records to students' work, and it all lives on the network. Access to information is fast, accurate and useful as a result, but districts must guarantee that everything is protected. Security measures include the provisions made in the district's network infrastructure and policies adopted by the network administrator to protect the network and network-accessible resources from unauthorized access. This article presents ten tips for Internet safety to assure the safety of both students and systems, and discusses some methods and tools that will help minimize risks to a school's network. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
