Frequently Asked Questions

 

Is STOPit really anonymous?

STOPit is truly anonymous. The school has no ability to identify the submitter of a report or message. At their discretion, an end user may choose to voluntarily provide identifying information in the content of their report or message.

 

How does the STOPit mobile app work?

Once the STOPit mobile app is downloaded to the student’s phone, it provides them with several powerful features. The Report feature can be used to anonymously submit an incident report consisting of an image, video, and/or text to school contacts who can respond to the incident and get help to the student in need. The STOPit mobile app also allows for anonymous two-way communication between students and school administrators with STOPit Messenger.

 

What student information does the school or user need to provide to STOPit?

None! STOPit does not require any end user information whatsoever. Information provided by STOPit app users is also kept private and secure. Please read our Privacy Policy. To learn more about the commitment to keeping data provided by students safe, learn more about the Student Privacy Pledge, to which STOPit is a signatory.

 

Who receives the reports my child submits via STOPit?

Reports and Messenger messages will be received by DMS administrators and counselors.

 

Can I as a parent, teacher or community member use the app to report incidents?

Yes, parents, teachers and community members can make an anonymous report via the STOPit app or through the desktop reporting link.
