STOPit Mobile App
We are excited to inform you that our school has enrolled with STOPit! STOPit is an online reporting tool designed to deter and mitigate bullying, cyber abuse, and other inappropriate behaviors. The application consists of a mobile app and a back-end incident management system for school administrators. Our students will have access to the STOPit mobile app, which has two simple but powerful features.
The Report feature of the mobile app can be used by students to report incidents to school contacts anonymously. The Messenger feature can be used to engage in anonymous two-way communication with school contacts.
Both Report and Messenger empower students to stand up for themselves and for one another. 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.
All students attended an assembly on 8-30-2019 and were invited to download the STOPit app from the app store on his or her smartphone or tablet at no charge.
