i-SAFE Direct AUP
CIPA requires schools to communicate an annual Internet policy plan, commonly referred to as an AUP, before receiving reimbursements for communications services through the E-Rate program.
These documents are often several pages in length, must be signed by a verified adult and the child, returned and then and stored for 10 years in case of audit.
Today, most schools still rely on paper-based AUP processes that are expensive, challenging to execute, inflexible, and open to potential fraud.
