Anonymous Reporting

STOPit AppSTOPit Anonymous Reporting & Messaging

STOPit is an online reporting tool designed to deter and mitigate bullying, cyber abuse, share safety issues and concerns, and other inappropriate behaviors. It consists of an app and a back-end incident management system for school and district administrators.

Students and employees have access to the STOPit mobile app, which has two simple but powerful features:

  • Report can be used by students or employees to report incidents to school or district contacts anonymously.
  • Messenger can be used to engage in anonymous two-way communication with school and district contacts.

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, school communities 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 a student 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.
