VAN VLECK ISD IS WITH STOPit TO EMPOWER AND PROTECT STUDENTS

STOPit App empowers students to stand up against bullying

 Van Vleck ISD is 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.

“This is the 2nd year we have used STOPit, and you can find the STOPit link on each school’s website front page. The online website and app have been very useful and are easy to use. October marks National Bullying Prevention and Awareness month so it is a great time to re-launch this app to our students and parents, and helps keep our schools safe.stated Superintendent John R. O’Brien.

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 has been launched and is active. For more information on how your students can use this app, visit with your campus administrators.
