ONALASKA, Wis. (WKBT) – An app is helping make the Onalaska School District a safer place for students.
Onalaska High School students can now use the Stop It app to report safety concerns at school. It lets 6th through 12th grade students anonymously report about cyber bullying, drugs and weapons, violence, and other issues.
High school staff spent Tuesday and Wednesday telling students about the app before it became available. The high school’s principal says it adds another way for students to feel safer at school.
“In this day and age, it’s a best practice to have that opportunity out there. We looked at what other school districts were using. We looked at even doing something homegrown through Google. In the end, this was the one that we felt most comfortable using,” said Onalaska High School Principal Jared Schaffner.
