    What is STOPit?

    STOPit empowers students and employees with an easy app to safely and anonymously report anything of concern to school officials – from cyberbullying to threats of violence or self-harm. STOPit empowers students and staff to stand up for themselves and others while giving our programs the insight we need to keep everyone safe.

    With STOPit, students and employees can submit anonymous reports containing text, photos, or video. Administrators are then able to manage incidents in a backend management system called DOCUMENTit. DOCUMENTit provides efficient and powerful investigative tools to our staff, including the ability to message with the reporter, which will allow us to address issues instantly.

    STOPit does more than just help us address incidents and mitigate risk. STOPit will also help us go beyond reacting to bullying and inappropriate behavior and instead start deterring it. As young people continue to engage more with technology every day, we are taking a proactive step to empower everyone to become upstanders in our community in the way that they feel most comfortable. Our use of STOPit is an important step in our continued effort to provide a positive school climate and a safe learning environment for everyone.

    Both Report and Messenger empower students and employees to stand up for themselves and for one another. Students and staff have the power to help put an end to potentially unsafe conditions and harmful and inappropriate behavior they see including 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 or report safety concerns. Our goal with STOPit is to create safer, kinder, community both online and off.

    No student or employee information is needed to use STOPit. The only way personally identifiable information will be accessible through STOPit is if someone voluntarily includes it within the content of a report or message.

    The district, our schools and STOPit are committed to protecting the privacy of student and employee data. STOPit is a signatory to the Student Privacy Pledge, spearheaded by the Future of Privacy Forum and the Software & Information Industry Association. You may review STOPit’s Privacy Policy for details, including more information on how anonymous reporting works.
