Creating Safer Places to Learn
Maintaining a positive school climate and getting students the help they need is the primary goal at St. Teresa’s Academy. In an effort to be proactive, students are encouraged to report inappropriate behaviors that may include but are not limited to bullying, harassment, or intimidation using the STOPit solutions app.
Students are encouraged to first report such issues directly to a teacher, counselor, coach, or school administrator. However, in some cases, a student may be overcome with fear and worry about who to talk to or what to say. She may fear retaliation or loss of respect from her peers.
Students with such fears need a reporting path and the STOPit app is designed to offer just that. With the app, she may report anonymously via mobile app or the STOPit website. The STOPit App is modern and easy to use with the ability for reporters to easily attach photos or videos. Encrypted and anonymous messaging allows for back-and-forth communication about an incident through an interface that looks and acts like texting.The system is 100% anonymous, 100% of the time.
