CIPA Compliance

The DRAW Academy implements the Internet Safety Policies by filtering the internet content at three different levels, Administration, Teacher, and Student.

Each user has access to needed resources designed and approved with the participation of students, teachers, parents, technology department, Principal, CEO/Superintendent, and Board of Directors.

The online filtering is managed by our Watch-Guard Firebox appliance and Internet safety software Iboss which is periodically updated as need it.

The school policy is presented and discussed at the Board of Directors by the Technology Department yearly.

Last version was discussed, revised and approved, under the new guidelines, by the Board of Directors on its quarterly meeting dated August  7th  2017
