STOPit - Anonymous Reporting

We are pleased to announce that PCSST now uses STOPit, an online anonymous reporting system designed to deter bullying, discrimination, and other inappropriate or unsafe behaviors.

Students and families can use STOPit to:

  • make anonymous reports through the STOPit mobile app, website, or via phone with the 24/7 Incident Response Center
  • submit a photo or video evidence (App/Web Only)
  • alert school administrators to issues early before they escalate
  • connect immediately via text with certified mental health counselors through the Crisis Text Line located in the app

Students and family members have the power to help put an end to harmful and inappropriate behavior they see online through social media and other means. Students can use STOPit to reach out for help if they or a peer are facing a personal crisis or experiencing bullying, abuse, or are in need of mental health support.

STOPit can be used to report

  • bullying
  • cyberbullying
  • discrimination
  • harassment
  • violence
  • threats
  • weapons
  • alcohol or drug-related issues
  • mental health struggles like suicidal ideations

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 STOPit Privacy Policy
