Decidedly Academic. Distinctively Christian.

Anti-Bullying App Introduced

Today at junior high chapel, Dean of Students, Jen Mounday, announced a new anti-bullying initiative that we have adopted this year. Foothill Christian School has enrolled with STOPit, the leading technology platform for schools that deters and controls harmful or inappropriate conduct. It empowers students with an easy app to safely and anonymously report anything of concern to school administration – from cyberbullying to threats of violence or self-harm. STOPit empowers students to stand up for themselves and others while giving us the insight we need to keep students safe.

Students can safely and anonymously report anything of concern to school administration – from cyberbullying to threats of violence or self-harm – via the STOPit app.

The STOPit app has been downloaded to every junior high iPad and it is available for students to submit anonymous reports containing text, photos, or video. Administrators are then able to manage incidents in a backend management system called DOCUMENTit. DOCUMENTit provides efficient and powerful investigative tools to our staff, including the ability to message with the reporter, which will allow us to address issues instantly.

STOPit does more than just help us address incidents and mitigate risk. STOPit will also help us go beyond reacting to bullying and inappropriate behavior, and instead start deterring it. As our students continue to engage more with technology every day, we are taking a proactive step to empower them to become Upstanders in our community in the way that they feel most comfortable. We believe our adoption of STOPit is an important step in our continued effort to provide a positive school climate and a safe learning environment for our students.

DOCUMENTit, a robust incident management system, empowers administrators and management to get in front of issues to mitigate risk and adhere to the ever evolving compliance landscape.

    As a parent, I am very happy to know that this app is available. The Stop It app can help give a voice to a kid in need or other kids and adults that want to help.
