Frontera Meets CIPA Filtering Requirements Test

Information about technology protection measures and BASCOM's Frontera CIPA filter Whether your school receives funding from Title II-D or E-rate, the Children's Internet Protection Act requires schools to implement a technology protection measure that will "block or filter" access to certain types of material on the Internet. With so many technology protection measure options available to schools, it is recommended that a product is used that allows your school to maximize the benefit of the Internet. Technology is available that is flexible, easy to use, compatible with all computer systems, fully customizable by schools, and creates productive learning zones of Web sites.

Customizable CIPA Compliant Filtering Solution

BASCOM's Frontera is the only Internet solution falling within the "block or filter" category that empowers teachers, focuses students, and releases the true educational potential of the Internet. BASCOM's Frontera offers schools customizable "zones" of student Web site access on a per machine or group basis. Teachers can easily choose focused sites for the day's lesson plan, offer students a wider range of educational Web sites, provide a filtered research zone, or supervise unlimited Web access. The K-12 server based CIPA filter solution helps educators to integrate rich, Web-based resources into the classroom in a safe and orderly manner - all while enhancing the security, efficiency and educational standards of the school in compliance with the Children's Internet Protection Act.
