STOPit

Tarkington Intermediate School is committed to maintaining the physical, academic, and emotional safety of every student. In compliance with David’s Law, we are partnering with the online STOPit program.

STOPit is an online reporting tool designed to deter and mitigate bullying and cyber abuse. This mobile app can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store or Google Play to any device.

There are two features to this app:

Report can be used by students and parents to report incidents to school administrators anonymously.

Messenger can be used to engage in anonymous two-way communications with school administrators.

Both Report and Messenger empower students to stand up for themselves and for one another. 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 a safer, kinder school community, both online and off.

No student information is needed to use STOPit. The only way personally identifiable information will be accessible through STOPit is if a student voluntarily includes it within the content of a report or message.
