What student information does the school or user need to provide to STOPit?
To learn more about our commitment to keeping data provided by students safe, learn more about the Student Privacy Pledge, to which STOPit is a signatory.
What information does STOPit obtain when using the app?
Is it really anonymous? Can the school find out who my child is through the STOPit app?
Can STOPit be used by children under the age of 13?
The STOPit app (and its browser-based version) may be used by children under the age of 13. We urge parents to contact the school's administration to learn more about how the school uses STOPit and the data we provide them.
What types of behavior or activity is supposed to be reported with STOPit?
STOPit is an entirely configurable experience and each district and school makes the decision about what types of reports they are asking the students to submit. STOPit has been used as a school safety solution as well as a powerful reporting tool for issues including bullying, hazing, violence, weapons possession, sexual harassment, discrimination, inappropriate on-line behavior, or threats.
Who receives the reports my child submits via STOPit?
Reports and Messenger messages will be received by the contacts designated by the school. Please check with your school for more information.
Can I as a parent use the app to report incidents?
Parent access of the STOPit app varies from school to school. If your school makes STOPit available to parents, then yes, you may use STOPit to report incidents. Schools often add a web link to the STOPit web app from their site(s).
