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 and cyber abuse, consisting of an 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.
Report can be used by students to report incidents to school contacts anonymously.
Get Help can be used to engage in anonymous two-way communication with school contacts.
Both Report and Get Help 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 a safer, kinder school community, both online and off.
No student 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.
We would like to invite you to join us for a Parent Presentation where we will share more with you about our school’s decision to sign up with STOPit, what STOPit will mean for our school community, and to provide you with an opportunity to ask questions. Please join us!
STOPit Parent Presentation: Tuesday, August 22, 2017 at 7:00 PM in the GHS Auditorium.
Please note that we will be launching STOPit with a School Assembly. At that time, your child will be invited to download the STOPit app from the app store on his or her smartphone or tablet at no charge.
