Dear Citrus Families,
We are pleased to announce that our school has enrolled with STOPit, by STOPit Solutions.
STOPit is an online reporting tool designed to deter and mitigate bullying, cyber abuse, and other inappropriate behaviors, consisting of an app and a back-end incident management system for school administrators.
Our 4th-6th grade students will have access to the STOPit mobile app, which has two simple but powerful features.
Specifically, the program educates students to:
Recognize the signs of at-risk behaviors
Take every sign and signal seriously
Report it anonymously through STOPit App/Web or 24/7 Incident Response Center
Submit photo or video evidence (App/Web Only)
Alert designated administrators to issues and risks early, before they escalate
No personal information is needed to use STOPit. The only way personally identifiable information will be accessible through STOPit is if a requester voluntarily includes it within the content of a request or message.
Students have the power to help put an end to harmful and inappropriate behavior they see online through social media and other means. They can use STOPit to reach out for help if they or a peer are facing a personal crisis or experiencing bullying, abuse, or are otherwise in need of assistance. Our goal with STOPit is to create safer, kinder, school communities both online and off.
Please note that we will be launching STOPit on May 1, 2023 for all families and 4th-6th graders to use.
We encourage you and/or your student to download the STOPit app. You can privately ask for help for your student, family, others you care about, or even acquaintances who appear to need help. For a video on how to use STOPit, go to: Student Training Video.
Together, we can make sure everyone in our community gets what they need to thrive. Thank you!
