Dallas, Dec. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — STOPit, which provides a comprehensive, anonymous software communication platform that mitigates and deters harassment, bullying, sexual assault and crime today announced it has seen continued growth in the state of Texas. The app and software is now used in over 100 districts in Texas, adding to the community of thousands of schools nationwide.
With the tap of a button in the STOPit app, students can anonymously share incidents with school administrators in real time – along with photographs, videos, screenshots or other documentary evidence that may be relevant. When reports are filed, school administrators are notified immediately so that they can address the issue and, when necessary, anonymously gather more information from the person who reported the incident.
STOPit is proven to deter misconduct in schools nationwide by empowering witnesses to report bullying and reduce documented incidents by as much as 83% with results immediately in the first year the platform is implemented. The mere existence of STOPit in a school community immediately forces bullies to think twice before posting. Some schools in Texas using the program include South San Antonio ISD, Comal ISD, Pampa ISD, Clarendon ISD, Big Spring ISD, and Lindale ISD.
The law causing major adoptions throughout the state is David’s Law, which requires each school to make it possible for students to anonymously report an incident of any type of bullying, including cyberbullying. The Law goes on to require an incident management process for the administrators of the schools, which STOPit’s DOCUMENTit component supports.
Also of note, the company continues it’s expansion as it now supports Texas Senate Bill 968, requiring Universities to also have a system for Students to Anonymously Electronically Report Sexual Assault and other Issues.
