Van Vleck ISD has 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.
“Keeping our learning community safe for our students and staff is our number one priority. As young people continue to engage more with technology every day, we are taking a proactive step to empower our students to become upstanding citizens in our community in the way that they feel most comfortable. Giving students, staff and parents the ability to notify campus administrators of concerning issues in a safe and anonymous way is wonderful. This will definitely be an amazing tool for the safety of our students,” said Van Vleck 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 DOCUMENTit.
DOCUMENTit 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.
“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.,” O’Brien said.
Van Vleck’s STOPit program launched Monday, Nov. 5. For more information, please contact the campus administrator.
STOPit is the leading technology company providing a comprehensive software platform that mitigates, deters and controls bullying, including cyberbullying, harassment and other harmful or inappropriate conduct.
The STOPit platform is available to schools, universities, businesses and governments both in the United States and around the world. The STOPit mobile app is a simple, fast and powerful tool which empowers individuals to protect themselves and stand up for others online, on social media, in the classroom or in the office. DOCUMENTit, a robust incident management system, empowers administrators and management to get in front of issues to mitigate risk and adhere to the ever evolving compliance landscape.
