Students are our most important first responders when it comes to school safety, as they are the eyes and ears of what is happening before, during, and after school. Equipping them with a fast, secure, anonymous communication tool enhances our layers of school safety and better promote a “see something, say something, do something” school culture.
STOPit is a mobile app that empowers any student at Avon High School, Avon Middle School North, and Avon Middle School South to anonymously report school safety issues and reach out for help if they or a peer are facing a personal crisis or experiencing situations such as bullying, theft, mental health concerns, violence, sexual harassment, substance abuse, or any other student safety concern.
This app is available to students 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The STOPit app has two important features:
This feature can be used by students to anonymously report incidents. Students can share as much detail as they want and can even include photos, screenshots, and videos. The report is received by district and school administrators in real-time, allowing them to quickly respond and begin taking the appropriate action.
This feature can be used to access local resources such as law enforcement, mental health centers, crisis hotlines, and additional resources.
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. Each school has a unique code for students to enter to ensure their anonymous report is instantly delivered to the appropriate school administrators and SROs.
