About STOPit! Antibullying App
Travis Unified School District will be piloting a program called STOPit at Vanden High School, an online and app-based system, to 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, TUSD is taking a proactive step to empowering students to become Upstanders in our community. TUSD believes the adoption of STOPit is an important step in the continued effort to provide a positive school climate and a safe learning environment for students.
With STOPit, users 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 staff, including the ability to message with the reporter, which will allow the school to address issues instantly. To access STOPit and make an anonymous report:
- Travis Unified School District is launching an optional app version of STOPit in January 2020. Users can download the app from the App Store or Google Play and use a correspoinding access code for the school. Information and phone app access codes are available online and are being shared with students.
- Web-based reporting via the STOPit website is available now. To make a report, click on the STOPit logo.
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.
