Dear Delhi USD Students, Parents and Staff,
Delhi Unified School District has been intently listening to our staff, students and parents regarding ways that we can work together to address and prevent bullying, cyber abuse, and other inappropriate behaviors. In response to your input, we are pleased to announce that our school district is enrolled with STOPit, by STOPit Solution.
STOPit is an online reporting tool that can be used on any computer, tablet or cell phone designed to report incidents of bullying, cyber abuse, threats, possible self harm and other inappropriate behaviors.
By using STOPit 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 ANONYMOUSLY 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 safer, kinder, school communities both online and off.
In addition to helping the district monitor and prevent inappropriate behaviors, students will have access to the STOPit mobile app, which has two simple but powerful features.
Specifically, the program educates students to:
Recognize the signs of at-risk behaviors
Take every sign and signal seriously
Report it anonymously through STOPit App/Web or 24/7 Incident Response Center
Submit photo or video evidence (App/Web Only)
Alert designated administrators to issues and risks early, before they escalate
No personal information is needed to use STOPit. The only way personally identifiable information will be accessible through STOPit is if a requester voluntarily includes it within the content of a request or message.
Please note that Delhi USD will be promoting STOPit at all school sites at the start of the school year. At that time, your child will be invited to download the STOPit app from the app store on his or her smartphone or tablet at no charge. Our district has also added STOPit as a bookmark on your child’s district chromebook to make it easily accessible to report an incident at anytime.
We encourage you to download the STOPit app and search for your students school using the directory. Simply begin to type Delhi. You can privately ask for help for your student, family, others you care about, or even acquaintances who appear to need help. For a video on how to use STOPit, go to: Student Training Video (grades 2-6) Student Training Video (grades 7-12) Parent Informational Video and Staff Video.
Together, we can make sure everyone in our community gets what they need to thrive.
