School Reporting and Response Guidelines
Carroll ISD is committed to ensuring a safe learning environment. Implementing programs that address the emotional and physical well being for all of our students, making personal connections with each student, and providing an anonymous system for reporting potentially dangerous situations are some of the ways we can accomplish this goal. We are pleased to announce that STOPit is now a part of our anonymous reporting efforts.
STOPit is designed to help students, parents and community members anonymously report concerns in our school community. Information about self harm, suicidal thoughts, bullying, harassment, drugs, violence, weapons, theft, or any other potential threat to school safety should be reported.
Anyone in the Carroll Middle School community can make a report, including students, staff, and parents. To ensure that we can respond to threats in a timely way, we request that all reports be made as soon as possible.
Ms. Mangels, Principal of Carroll Middle School, along with the CMS Counselors, will be responsible for receiving reports from STOPit. Upon receiving an anonymous report, they may take interim measures to ensure the safety, health, and welfare of all parties pending the findings of the investigation.
Remember that STOPit is NOT an emergency reporting system. If you need to report an emergency, please immediately dial 911. Also, please note that while all reports made through STOPit will be answered as expeditiously as possible, there may be a response delay for reports received outside of school hours, over the weekend, or during holidays.
Finally, STOPit is not intended to replace direct contact with school administration or counselors. Please feel free to directly contact Carroll Middle School staff with any issues or concerns you may have. We take your security seriously at Carroll Middle School and we will do everything we can to resolve your concerns as quickly as possible. Together, we can help stop school crises before they happen!
Your school is your home away from home; help keep it safe by reporting potential threats. Remember: You Have the POWER and You Can Make a Difference!
