Stopit Anonymous Reporting
We are pleased to announce that our school has enrolled with STOPit, by STOPit Solutions. STOPit is an online reporting tool designed to deter and mitigate bullying, cyber abuse, and other inappropriate behaviors, consisting of an app and a back-end incident management system for school administrators.
The STOPit program was launched to 6th-12th grade students during their Card Pride class on Wednesday, September 21st. Students were instructed to download the app from the app store on his or her smartphone or tablet at no charge. Specifically, the program educates students to:
- Recognize the signs of at-risk behaviors
- Take every sign and signal seriously
- Report it anonymously through STOPit App/Web or 24/7 Incident Response Center
- Submit photo or video evidence (App/Web Only)
- Alert designated administrators to issues and risks early, before they escalate
Students have the power to help put an end to harmful and inappropriate behavior they see online through social media and other means. They can use STOPit to reach out for help if they or a peer are facing a personal crisis or experiencing bullying, abuse, or are otherwise in need of assistance. Our goal with STOPit is to create safer, kinder, school communities both online and off.
We want to stress that this app is not a replacement for current reporting protocols (telling a staff member about any safety issues), but is another tool to anonymously report incidents. This reporting needs to be taken seriously and used appropriately. Any offenders will be blocked.
Together, we can make sure everyone in our community gets what they need to thrive. Thank you!
Stopit is also available using a web browser, by going to https://web.stopitsolutions.com/login and entering the ACCESS CODE provided to students and parents separately.
