The Stopit app empowers and protects students and to stand up against bullying
Page County Public Schools has enrolled with STOPit, the leading technology platform for schools that deters and controls harmful or inappropriate conduct. STOPit empowers students 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 to stand up for themselves and others while giving our schools the insight we need to keep students safe.
With STOPit, students can submit anonymous reports containing text, photos, or video. Administrators are then able to manage incidents in a backend management system called STOPit Admin. STOPit Admin 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 schools 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 our students to become Upstanders in our community in the way that they feel most comfortable. We believe our adoption of STOPit is an important step in our continued effort to provide a positive school climate and a safe learning environment for our students.
Our STOPit program launched on March 4, 2019. The app can be downloaded from the Apple App store or Google Play. For more information regarding the Stopit App or to receive your child’s school code, please stop in at your child’s school and request the code or contact division Director of Student Support Services : John R. Van Wyck, M.S. at (540)-743-6533 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Parents and Guardians
All of our schools have enrolled with STOPit! STOPit (https://stopitsolutions.com/) is an online reporting tool designed to deter and mitigate bullying, cyber abuse, and other inappropriate behaviors, consisting of an app and a management system for school administrators.
Students and parents will have access to the STOPit mobile app, which has two simple but powerful features.
- Report can be used by students/parents to report incidents anonymously.
- Messenger can be used to engage in anonymous two-way communication with school.
Both Report and Messenger empower students/parents to stand up and help put an end to harmful and inappropriate behavior such as bullying, cyberbullying, threats, hazing, and discrimination. The STOPit mobile app can also be used to reach out for help if they or a peer are facing a personal crisis or experiencing abuse, or are otherwise in need of assistance.
Our goal with STOPit is to create a safer, kinder, school community. No student information is needed to use STOPit. The only way personally identifiable information will be accessible through STOPit is if a student/parent voluntarily includes it within the content of a report or message.
