STOPit gives staff, parents, and kids the tools and opportunity to take positive action against inappropriate incidents. After entering their school's access code, kids can choose between STOPit's two functions: Report and Get Help. The Report button lets kids instantly (and when desired, anonymously) report bullying behavior. They can enter text and also automatically send a photo or video from their mobile device. Kids can connect with their school administrators anonymously through a Messenger feature. The Get Help button lets kids access resources by calling or texting a preset list of resource numbers. Schools can also use the app to send notifications to users about safety alerts or other critical information.
The administrative dashboard allows designees to review incidents and code them based on the status of the follow-up (e.g., active, pending, or closed). Administrators can run reports based on date, location, incident type, or resolution. An activity log lets the main administrator know who made edits in the administrative dashboard. When considering the type of incident, administrators can choose from a list to code the report; the list includes categories like Bullying, Physical Assault, Hazing, Vandalism, False Report, Self-Harm, and more. Additionally, admins can flag the follow-up priority of an incident to None, High, Medium, or Low and provide action and resolution options such as Counseling, Probation, Detention, and so on.
STOPit is free to download, and it's only accessible via an access code provided through a paid subscription by a school or an organization.
