For the 2021-22 academic school year, SVHS will be using STOPit. STOPit is an online and app-based system designed to help empower students, parents, teachers, and others to anonymously report anything of concern to school officials - from cyber-bullying to threats of violence or self-harm.
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 hope that STOPit can help students be proactive and feel empowered to help support a safe and inclusive learning environment. STOPit is an important step in the continued effort to provide a positive school climate and a safe learning environment for students.
How to Report Your Concern
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 App - Secondary students can use the STOPit App to make a report by following these steps:
- Download the app from the App Store or Google Play and use the district access code provided by their campus administrators
- Click on your “STOPit” app.
- Select your school.
- Make your report.
Please keep in mind, STOPit is not an emergency response service. If you believe your call requires immediate police, fire, or paramedic response, call 9-1-1. STOPit does not provide counseling or clinical advice. If you feel you need this type of attention, please seek the assistance of a qualified clinical or medical professional.
